Designed to “reverse the script” on mainstream narrative, We are still heroes was created from the perspective of those who have been forced to choose between their livelihoods and compromise their personal beliefs. Highlighting the cost of vaccination mandates and medical discrimination, the campaign tells the stories of once-famous frontline workers who are now barred from their profession for choosing bodily autonomy.
As part of its launch, We are still heroes placed full-page ads in The San Francisco Chronicle, The Los Angeles Times, the San Diego Union Tribune and the Orange County Register. Despite the strong censorship of The Los Angeles Times and the San Diego Union Tribune, both of which reversed the decision to run the ads, the campaign was met with an overwhelming response from doctors, nurses, firefighters, teachers and the general public. In just 48 hours, the campaign’s Instagram account grew to more than 16,000 followers and website visits nearly crashed the site.
“We ask two crucial questions: ‘Isn’t courage always beautiful, even if it is not vaccinated?’ and “Do we oppose all forms of discrimination, including medical?,” Trimino said. These frontline workers sacrifice while standing up for freedom, and we must take action to ensure that discrimination does not has no place in any industry.”
