We Are Counties

We Are Counties – Putting a face on the local COVID-19 pandemic response

America’s 3.6 million county, parish and borough employees are on the front lines of the nation’s response to the coronavirus pandemic. Americans across the country are showing tremendous gratitude toward these hospital workers, first responders, public health and human services officials, law enforcement personnel, coroners and medical examiners, and other county employees.

NACo's We Are Counties campaign is putting faces on the many frontline services counties provide – including 328,000 hospital workers, 330,000 law enforcement officers, 93,000 first responders and many more – and we need your help. By submitting a short video to NACo, help us demonstrate that talented public servants make these services possible.

Use these video tips to help you make the most impactful image you can make at home, at work, or as a group (with social distancing rules practiced). You can easily upload your clip, just click here or email your content to submissions@naco.org.
