Letter to Governor Newsom: COVID-19 Vaccination is Leaving Latino Californians Behind


Latino leaders from California provide evidence that Latinos are being left behind from access to COVID-19 vaccinations and ask for the implementation of distribution policies that reach Latino communities.

70 Latino leaders write a letter to Newsom asking for a more equitable distribution policy.

“We are deeply grateful for your leadership during this unprecedented public health crisis and write as a diverse cadre of Latino leaders and allies who have coalesced to provide your Administration strategic input on substantive and descriptive representation in the world’s fifth-largest economy. We find ourselves at yet another major crossroads in the COVID-19 pandemic and believe that your Administration must take concrete steps to prioritize the state’s plurality population in vaccine distribution to immediately correct the unequal rollout that is leaving too many frontline communities behind.”
