News and Announcements

Email Account Issue: hola@latin19.org

Last week we discovered a technical issue with our main email account. If you sent a message over the last 3 months, we may not have received it. The issue has been resolved but we are not able to retrieve missed messages.
Please reach out to hola@latin19.org to share information or connect with the Executive Team. In particular, we are looking for assistance identifying hair salons, barbershops, nail salons, and eyebrow threading businesses that are owned or cater to the comunidad latina, as well as immigrant and refugee communities.

We're working to support mobile clinics across the Triangle. You can view our spreadsheet to see upcoming vaccine clinics for the Latina community. You are welcome to share this resource with others. If you would like to add a clinic, please submit the information to hola@latin19.org
