LatinX inVISIBLE ¿y dónde está mi gente? How visible or invisible is the Latinx, Latino, Latina, Hispanic community? What brings us all together to celebrate, to mobilize, to serve? The goal of our convening is to learn from our history and begin to ask questions about the cost of citizenship, the state of our health and our overall unity. We invite the cultivation of ideas on how to move forward as a united community. Be a part of this unprecedented and transformative journey. Join us as we amplify our visibility.

The Foundation for a Healthy St. Petersburg and Estrategia Group invites you to its first Latinx Virtual Convening, October 24th, 2020 10:00am-1pm EST. Simultaneous Spanish interpretation will be available.

We seek to connect with leaders who engage or identify as Latinas, Latinos, Hispanics, Spanish Speakers and are in the pursuit of unity and equity.

This community-led convening is to explicitly begin listening to the barriers/challenges to achieving health equity that exist among the Latinx, Latina, Latino, Hispanic, and/or other Spanish-speaking people who live in our County as the fastest growing demographic groups.
