Latinos on the Move, 2021 Virtual Policy Luncheon
November 5, 2021 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm PDT
“Latinos on the Move 2021: Together, We Persevere” will dive into the Forum’s work focusing on the long term impact of Covid so our Latino communities have every opportunity for a healthy, fair life.
This year, The Forum will proudly honor Illinois Unidos with the Champion of Change award during the event. Illinois Unidos is a coalition consisting of elected officials, health professionals, and community leaders that was launched in the early months of the COVID-19 pandemic to develop and implement strategies to address the disproportionate impact of COVID-19 on communities of color. Today, Illinois Unidos continues to lead the charge to ensure that Illinois Latinos have equal access to information and resources about COVID-19.
The event will feature remarks from the Forum’s President & CEO, Sylvia Puente, Healthy Communities Foundation’s President, Maria Pesqueira and members of Illinois Unidos.
The viewing link will be sent in advance of the event.
