National Week of Action
Voto Latino Foundation National Week of Action
June 6, 2021- June 12, 2021
Voto Latino Foundation (VLF) is hosting a National Week of Action with our partners to educate and inform individuals on the importance of the COVID-19 vaccine. We know that the Latinx community and other communities of color are not being vaccinated at the same rate as white persons across the country, and that work is needed to educate folks on the vaccine’s safety and fight misinformation that is causing hesitation.
To fight the disproportionate impact COVID-19 has had in communities of color, we are joining together with organizations from the Asian American Pacific Islander (AAPI), Black and other marginalized spaces to mobilize our members to get vaccinated and encourage their families and friends to do the same.
On Our Partnership with Uber and GoGoGrandparent
Voto Latino Foundation is partnering with Uber and GoGoGrandparent to coordinate and provide a ride to vaccine appointments at no cost. This support is available in Florida starting May 17th and will roll out nationally shortly after. Interested individuals can call the free hotline at: (855) 497-2117.
Voto Latino Foundation invites our Impact Council Members and partners to join our National Week of Action! Together, we’ll inform our networks on the importance of the COVID-19 vaccine and on how folks can use our hotline to schedule a ride to that appointment at no cost.
1) Take Our Pledge (to post before June 6)
Voto Latino Foundation welcomes our partners to share our pledge to make sure folks get vaccinated! We ask that our pledge gets shared on our partners channels before Sunday, June 6th. Pledge signers will be encouraged to join our National Vaccine Week of Action!
2) Uplift our Hotline and Rideshare Program! (to post June 6 – June 12… and beyond!)
Voto Latino Foundation is partnering with Uber and GoGoGrandparent on a bilingual English/Spanish hotline that provides rides to vaccine appointments at no cost! We encourage our partners to uplift this hotline to their channels.
