Latinx Outreach and COVID-19 Campaign
National and local data points to higher COVID-19 positivity rates for Latinx and African-American community members. TJHD is ramping up its COVID-19 mitigation messaging for Spanish speakers with the help of community navigators, health workers, organizers, and liaisons, as well as bilingual volunteers and students. We are currently identifying recurring themes, with the aim of creating a relevant, trustworthy, dynamic campaign that can support COVID-19 outreach.
