EMPODERATE!

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.
