Being New Mexican means taking care of one another.
From delivering food to our neighbors and friends when they are sick to helping one another with childcare, we know what it means to have intergenerational responsibility and respect. Now, as we go into the third year of the COVID-19 pandemic, it’s more important than ever to continue to care and show up for one another, while doing everything we can to make health and wellness a priority.
The COVID-19 pandemic has revealed the need for community-mindedness and collaboration more than ever before. National data has widely demonstrated that COVID-19 has disproportionately impacted the health and well-being of People of Color; especially Black, Indigenous, and Latino/Chicano/Hispanic communities.
HELPNM and CPLCNM have partnered with the national UnidosUS campaign to bring awareness to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. Right here in New Mexico, we are assessing ways minority New Mexican communities have been affected, and what we can do to stay healthy and care for one another during this challenging time. Our campaign raises awareness about vaccine efficacy and shares available resources with anyone who is in need.
