Hudson Safe

HUDSON RESIDENTS PARTNER WITH CITY OF HUDSON TO STOP THE SPREAD OF COVID-19


The city of Hudson has teamed up with two local organizations to develop a civic health campaign to promote safe physical distancing as a way of showing love for Hudson.

The campaign is called Hudson Safe, and was created by Hudson residents Peter Spear and Jonathan Lerner of FUTURE HUDSON, and Alison Matheny of BEST Creative Studio.

The Hudson Safe campaign kicks off with new signage at parks. The signs give clear direction of actions that people need to take, infusing a positive, community-minded tone.

OUR COMMUNITY’S SAFETY DEPENDS ON WIDE PARTICIPATION

Until there is a vaccine, the most effective way of stopping the spread is for individuals to take responsibility for the health and well-being of their neighbors. 

We can protect ourselves by protecting each other.

The goal of HUDSON SAFE is to inspire civic pride and reinforce basic safe behaviors — staying home, keeping distance, wearing masks. The message is underscored by a consistent appeal to Do your part. 

COVID-19 is causing damage. How we respond can strengthen our communities.

Printing costs were generously covered by the Berkshire Taconic Community Foundation's Columbia County Emergency Fund.

The campaign was inspired by The City of Rochester’s “Six Feet Saves” campaign created by Partners + Napier and made available to the public.

The three were encouraged by the Mayor’s Office and worked with the City on clear messaging. The campaign also has the endorsement of the County Health Department. 

Anyone can help support the campaign by wearing a Hudson Safe button, displaying a poster in their window, or posting on social media.

And, if anyone would like a poster for your window, have ideas on how Hudson Safe can further support the community, or would like to know more, please email Peter Spear at peterbspear@gmail.com.
