Showing up for Atlanta’s Latin American Community
Ser Familia, in Atlanta, GA, provides family, social and mental health services to Latino communities in the Atlanta metropolitan area. During the COVID-19 pandemic, Ser Familia began hosting regular vaccination events where people could have their questions answered in English and Spanish. Latino community members with ties to over a dozen countries attended, trusting that Ser Familia would take care of them.
At the height of the COVID-19 pandemic, the CDC Foundation partnered with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and community-based organizations across the country to increase access and confidence in vaccines across all communities, including those where disparities exist. In honor of the ongoing Partnering for Vaccine Equity (P4VE) program and the tireless and creative efforts of these organizations, this video highlights some of the work these incredible groups have done.
