    Hello, This is Vanessa Reyes, 19 year old teen from Winston-Salem

    I am an organizer with a Latinx grassroots organization called Mijente. Mijente is a national political home for our people. My team and are working to build Latinx power here in NC largely through our efforts to register our eligible Latinx folks to vote.

    We would love to reach out to all of our people and to build power and raise our voices with them including NCCCLO. Would love to be in touch,

    7/9 – Three Amigas Talk about Mental Health in the LatinX Community

    Victoria Gonzalez, Jacqueline Martinez, and Nilda Rodriguez have battled mental illness and stigma their whole lives. It hasn’t been easy, but each of them has served on state and national boards and had a voice in developing policy to make life better for others. Get their thoughts on life, recovery, and why Latinx persons are four times as likely to be hospitalized for COVID-19 than white folks, according to the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention.

    Good Afternoon,


    I work for FEMA’s Office of Equal Rights (OER) as a Civil Rights Advisor. Our office is responsible for ensuring equal access of services and benefits to disaster survivors. For your reference, I have attached the FEMA Civil Rights Bulletin entitled “Ensuring Civil Rights During the COVID-19 Response” which outlines the Office of Equal Rights’ responsibility for ensuring compliance with FEMA’s external Civil Rights obligations.


    Please provide the following information, as requested by OER and leadership, in order to track compliance and address any needs that may arise.


    1) Have any persons identifying as “protected groups” made claims for Civil Rights assistance? If so, please explain.


    2) Are there any Civil Rights issues being reported through your local media? If yes, please explain.


    3) What are the most prevalent LEP languages within the affected areas (i.e.. Spanish, ASL, etc.)? Is messaging and information sharing being distributed in these languages?


    4) What media outlets or platforms are being utilized for information sharing and public messaging to the general public and LEP communities?


    5) Please provide any additional relevant information regarding requests or issues regarding equal access to and benefits


    Your prompt response is greatly appreciated. Feel free to contact me if you have any questions.


    Thank you in advance for your assistance.


    Please send me an email address so that I can email the attachment. Also, I do not speak Spanish. Please let me know if I need an Interpreter to communicate with you.

    Good Morning,


    My name is Francesca Areas, I am interested in learning more about the work of the Latino Congress and how I can participate and contribute to the organization. I will give you a brief background of myself: I was born in the Dominican Republic and raised in New York city. I served 4 years in the Army and I am currently living in NC. I have always been very outspoken and engage in a few intellectual conversations amongst my friends. As a result of those conversations it has motivated me to become active. I would like to see more opportunities and resources made available to the Hispanic population. But one of my major concerns is education and specifically elementary and middle school and the lack of resource and help that schools in this state offer to Hispanic kids.


    I do respond quicker via email since I work from 8:30 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.

    Hola,


    Somos estudiantes de Duke University. Estamos en una clase se llama “Latino Voices in Duke, Durham, and Beyond” y un parte de nuestra clase es escribir y publicar un libro sobre mujeres y organizaciones en nuestra comunidad. Estamos interesados en el trabajo de su organización y esperábamos entrevistar a una mujer quien trabaja en Latino Congress. Si podría ponernos en contacto con alguien, se lo agradecemos. Nos gustaría hacer la entrevista antes del 24 de octubre y podemos hacerlo por teléfono o en persona.


    Muchas gracias,

    Alex y Sarah

    To whom it may concern,


    I’m writing to inquire if your group would have any interest in tabling at a nonpartisan voter engagement effort on Wake Forest University’s campus on Wednesday September 12th. I’m on the Deacs Decide committee that’s help organizing this event. You can see the details on our website.


    http://phi.wfu.edu/politicalengagement/deacsdecide-2/


    I thought of you all because I used to work with Democracy North Carolina for 5 years before I started working at Wake Forest University last year. In that time I went to a few events your organization did including legislative advocacy at the General Assembly.


    If your group has any literature to share and someone who could talk to students as they come by about civic engagement and Latinx issues, we’d love to have that represented at this event. Please let me know by Tuesday the 4th at noon if you are able and interested in participating so we have time to get our programs ready and supplies ordered and prepared. You can e-mail me at goadja@wfu.edu


    A number of student groups will be tabling as well as community groups and nonprofits like the League of Women Voters, the NAACP Democracy North Carolina, and others. If you have any questions, just let me know. Thank you!


    Sincerely,

    Jake Gellar-Goad
