The Latino Coalition Against COVID-19 (LCAC19) is a national community-led, non-partisan, collaborative movement to build health equity in Latinx communities. We join together with other organizations, task forces, coalitions, and alliances to build community capacity, combat misinformation, and amplify local voices to a national level. By forming meaningful partnerships facilitated by active collaboration and shared decision-making, our collective efforts can improve the health and well-being of Latinx communities across the country.
LCAC19 was created to ensure Latino/as have accurate and readily available information about COVID-19, equitable access to testing, resources, and services, and have the tools to overcome digital exclusion to remain aware and engaged.
Our goal is to transform the social and economic conditions in Latinx communities by changing public policy through a unified voice. In addition, we use our virtual forum to recognize and learn from the many local leaders who are making invaluable contributions to our communities.
