QUICK ACTION for Ahmaud Arbery

May 15, 2020
This was a tough Mother’s Day. Not just because of the pandemic. We were also all thinking of Ahmaud Arbery’s mother Wanda, who was grieving the loss of her son at the hands of two men who literally hunted down and killed him while he was jogging.

This Dia de las Madres (Mother's Day) Help us Secure our Children’s Future Through A Full Census Count

May 7, 2020
As families practice “safer-at-home” measures, school their children in virtual classrooms, and abstain from most of their usual activities before this public health crisis, we have all been reminded of the importance of safety and the future. This means ensuring a full and accurate count of everyone in the 2020 Census. And while research has made it clear that we need more creative strategies to reach and encourage Latino families to include their young children in the census, it is incumbent on all of us to do our part in making sure everyone in our networks is counted.
