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.


Your voice is extremely important. We want to know what some of the biggest challenges agricultural workers face in their day-to-day lives are so we can work to help address them. We cannot do that without hearing directly from workers such as yourself. When the survey project is complete, we plan to report the results back to the community and discuss the best ways to address the issues that were identified through our research.

By participating in this survey, you can help improve conditions for agricultural workers, their families, and ultimately our communities. The survey will cover many topics including wages, housing, health care, vaccination awareness, and safety conditions on the job. The survey takes approximately 30 minutes or less to complete.

Vaccines and Booster Shots

Our communities must do everything they can to care for themselves and others. Studies show that Hispanic and Latino individuals are at greater risk of infection, hospitalization, and death from COVID-19 complications. Vaccines are available, safe, and effective for everyone ages 6 months and older, and have been proven to decrease the likelihood of severe illness or need for hospitalization.


Did you know more than half of individuals who test positive for COVID-19 don’t exhibit symptoms? That’s why it’s important to test regularly. If your job or daily activities make it harder for you to social distance or increase your risk of contracting COVID-19, you may have the virus and not even know! Even if you don’t feel sick, the only way to know if you have COVID-19 and could possibly infect someone else is by getting tested.
