Latin-19 meets regularly with the goal to connect with and support the local Latinx community during the pandemic. So far, the group has evaluated available information, translated documents and advocated for local government entities to release materials in Spanish, and has tapped into their networks to disseminate resources to local Latinx residents. During the meetings, different members provide updates on their end and evaluate areas that need to be either still addressed or addressed further.
