This project, specifically geared toward COVID-19/SARS-CoV-2 deniers, is an informational booklet that would be mailed out to people in the US in a package also containing a mask and hand sanitizer. I did some research on the psychology behind changing someone's mind and utilized the methods I found (for instance, presenting both sides of an argument and listing specific consequences of each outcome). The goal here was to capture the attention of people who have already decided that COVID-19 isn't real by using phrases they may use themselves (i.e. "it's a hoax") and then disputing that misinformation in a gentle and friendly way.
