We are a network of support for the Hispanic community across the country.
The Hispanic Star Hubs were born as a response to the COVID-19 pandemic as the Hispanic community was disproportionately affected at the health and economic levels.
We provide support to Hispanic families in need by taking action at the local level through local organizations.
Because what makes us one, makes us strong.
Thanks to our partners and network of volunteers we have distributed more than 3.2 million essential products across more than 20 cities.
This has a direct impact in more than 300,000 Hispanic households.
| Los Angeles
Hispanic Star LA Hub is raising $10,000 to flood the beautiful city of Los Angeles (and beyond) with diverse children’s books that are sold by people of color, written by people of color and feature diverse racial identities to help break the cycle of racism. With the help of partner experts, organizations and authors, Hispanic Star will distribute children’s books ages newborn to 12 years old that represent all ethnicities.
Hispanic Star Austin Hub is raising $5,000 to support health-care co-pays to the most vulnerable and impacted Latinx populations in Austin, Texas. Currently, 1 in 4 working-age Hispanic/Latinx adults have no primary healthcare provider and are disproportionately uninsured.
These funds will support COVID impacted adults with funding for co-pays, well check-ups or visits to see a health provider. With the help of our city partners, organizations and caring Austinites, Hispanic Star Austin Hub will be able to positively impact the lives of thousands of Hispanics/Latinos in the Austin area.
Help Hispanic Star Miami raise funds to protect our farmworker heroes and their families from COVID-19. The face masks will be made by Nelly, a micro entrepreneur working diligently to stop the spread of the virus. Her passion and commitment is expressed through her mission: “Whatever I create, I make it with love.”
| New York
With 12% of Hispanic Households still without Internet Access, this is a priority issue to tackle in NYC as the future of Public Education is unknown due to COVID-19.
The NYC Hub will acquire and install 10,000 routers to help Hispanic students finish their school years and prepare for a potential virtual fall term.
In Philadelphia, we began our focus on helping our local Latinx youth recover from the COVID-19 pandemic. We have held virtual programming with subject-matter experts, raised money, and provided food for families in need. Our hub is committed to positively impacting the Hispanic/Latinx community in the Greater Philadelphia Area and to provide resources and a powerful support network.
