Promotores in Action: Advocacy in Washington, D.C.
September 13-15, 2022
Our promotores and community health workers had a fantastic visit to our nation‘s capitol! We traveled from California, Nevada, Texas, and Washington to advocate about our role, power, and impact through sharing testimonies that highlighted workforce and community priorities. We met and connected with dozens of congressional staff, legislative aids, and members in both the House and Senate who were welcoming and excited to be meeting with us. We left D.C. with a commitment to continue to be puentes comunitarios (community bridges) to all of the partners and representatives we met with. We were reminded that la lucha sigue (the fight goes on), and we are thankful for our partners and allies as we continue to advocate hacia vida digna y sana (toward a dignified and healthy life).
