The Coalition to End Social Isolation & Loneliness is the affiliate 501(c)4 organization to the Foundation dedicated to engaging diverse stakeholders, increasing public awareness, promoting innovative research, and advocating policy changes that combat the adverse consequences of social isolation and loneliness while advancing approaches that improve social connectedness for all Americans.
The Global Initiative on Loneliness and Connection was formed in the Summer of 2020 amid the global COVID-19 crisis. It is an international organization comprised of liaisons representing national organizations committed to addressing the global crisis of loneliness and social isolation and to support the dissemination of system-wide, national approaches to building social connection.
We regularly join others’ efforts to raise awareness of our social isolation and loneliness epidemic and the importance of social connection.
