EMPODERATE!
LISTEN TO THE ENTIRE SHOW

There are more than 30 LGBTQ youth centers across the U.S., but few target the Spanish-speaking community specifically. That’s why La Clinica del Pueblo, a community health center in the predominantly Latino neighborhood of Columbia Heights, Washington DC opened Empoderate. It’s a bilingual center that provides counseling, support, and free HIV testing to LGBTQ youth in the area.

This piece was produced by Lily Percy, edited by Maria Martin & mixed by Claire Schoen. It’s part of a year-long series examining health issues facing Latinos.

Latino USA’s year-long look at Latinos and Health is made possible by funding from Pfizer Helpful Answers®, a family of patient assistance programs for the uninsured and underinsured who need help getting Pfizer medicines.

Well, most graduates’ jobs are not reltead to their majors, so you can be pretty much anything you want to be. Also, I am not sure how the Latino Communist will benefit from this degree, but I am pretty sure your community will benefit by having more college graduates and more teachers who are passionate about teaching kids.
