HISPANIC STAR IN ACTION

The Hispanic community is disproportionately affected by COVID-19.
In an effort to recognize the ceaseless work Hispanics are doing to
support
this country and to facilitate help to those in need,
we are kicking off
a Hispanic Star Month of Action to support those impacted by this pandemic.
