Latinos on the Move 2021: Together, We Persevere

"Latinos on the Move 2021: Together, We Persevere" will dive into the Forum's work focusing on the long term impact of Covid so our Latino communities have every opportunity for a healthy, fair life.

This year, The Forum will proudly honor Illinois Unidos with the Champion of Change award during the event. Illinois Unidos is a coalition consisting of elected officials, health professionals, and community leaders that was launched in the early months of the COVID-19 pandemic to develop and implement strategies to address the disproportionate impact of COVID-19 on communities of color. Today, Illinois Unidos continues to lead the charge to ensure that Illinois Latinos have equal access to information and resources about COVID-19.

The event will feature remarks from the Forum's President & CEO, Sylvia Puente, Healthy Communities Foundation's President, Maria Pesqueira and members of Illinois Unidos.
