latino health equity conference

june 24 & 25

2


Familias en Acción is proud to present our 12th annual Latino Health Equity Conference, “Me cuido, te cuido”. “Me cuido, te cuido”, prioritizes one’s health, the health of one’s partners, and that of the community. This perspective cultivates and promotes values of mutual respect, acceptance, equality and empathy. This year’s virtual conference aims to broaden our knowledge and awareness on sexual health, sexuality, and HIV by leveraging the experiences of the Latino community. We will highlight community-driven initiatives that prevent new HIV infections, support Latinos living with HIV, and work towards ending cultural stigmas that impact Latino health. Familias has a long and strong history of creating community health programs and curricula that are trauma informed and culturally specific. The development of Abuela, Mama y Yo (AMY) and Me Cuido, Te Cuido (MCTC) are our greatest accomplishments in the past two years. Latino parents, parentsto-be, community leaders and Latino-serving organizations guided the development of AMY and MCTC.

The role of faith leaders in communities of color is not only sacred, but a bond that extends beyond generations. Faith communities learn ways of living through life challenges using biblical and other religious teachings. This panel discussion brings together faith leaders who will share insight on ways to decrease stigma of those living with, or at risk of contracting HIV in the faith community, analyze the intersectionality of spirituality and sexuality, provide methods to increase awareness of possible discriminatory practices among faith communities of color (without regard to race, gender, or sexual orientation) with the goal of eliminating the HIV epidemic.
