The LatinX/Hispanic community in Austin has been disproportionately affected by the pandemic of COVID-19. Many have lost their jobs, reliable sources of income, faced housing and food insecurities, and are battling mental health issues. What is even more the Latinx/Hispanic community is facing higher hospitalization rates, vaccination shortages, and higher mortality rates.

The Community Resilience Trust COVID-19 LatinX Study was launched in May of 2020 to explore these issues and provide actionable steps from the community to our leaders. This report has been presented to our elected officials, and now we are inviting the community to join us for a conversation with our elected officials on how we must move forward to remedy this issue.

We will also be hearing from community leaders, grassroots organizations, and researchers who covered a lot of ground to make this study possible. This is your opportunity to lend your voice for change in our city and advocate for the wellbeing of our LatinX/Hispanic community members.

The event will begin at 6 pm and wrap up at 8 pm. It will be a virtual event, and there is no cost to attend, you simply need to register at this link.
