LULAC Joins Coalition In Asking: How Are You Feeling Right Now?
Nation's Oldest and Largest Latino Civil Rights Organization Has Bilingual Emotional Well-Being Help During COVID-19
Washington, DC - The League of United Latin American Citizens (LULAC) today announced its participation with the CDC Foundation in an important health campaign in both English and Spanish to help individuals and families experiencing the effects of confinement and isolation away from others during the pandemic.
“There’s no question that COVID-19 is changing our entire social framework,” says Sindy Benavides, National Chief Executive Officer. “One of the most difficult aspects of what we’re all living through is that the pandemic is affecting each of us differently. It is not just the physical aspect but the mental and emotional dynamics which are being stressed daily. What I love about the How Right Now site is how easy it is to navigate and the resources are simple and very user-friendly. LULAC is encouraging Latinos throughout the country to make full use of this information for every member of the family, including those who need the help in Spanish,” she adds.
The League of United Latin American Citizens (LULAC) is the nation’s largest and oldest civil rights volunteer-based organization that empowers Hispanic Americans and builds strong Latino communities. Headquartered in Washington, DC, with 1,000 councils around the United States and Puerto Rico, LULAC’s programs, services and advocacy address the most important issues for Latinos, meeting critical needs of today and the future.
