The COVID-19 pandemic has disproportionately affected the U.S. Latino community. As the nation continues to battle the pandemic, we advocate for all in the Hispanic community to have easy and effective access to the COVID-19 vaccines. Over the last ten years, the Latino share of the United States population has increased from 16% to 18%. Hispanics are now the country’s second-largest ethnic group, are more likely to be entrepreneurs than the overall U.S. population, and contribute over a quarter of a trillion dollars in taxes every year.
Our partners at Unidos have created a website to share bilingual Covid-19 prevention information with your local communities.
The Esperanza Hope for All Campaign bilingual toolkit has a list of simple but general messages on COVID-19 meant to be shared with those in your local community.
Sharing reliable and accurate public health information during the COVID-19 pandemic is important and we hope you will help us amplify this messaging.
UnidosUS is the nation’s largest Latino civil rights and advocacy organization. Since our founding in 1968, we have contributed to a stronger America by elevating the voice of Latinos, and defending and advancing our community’s concerns.
