ACCESS launches Spanish language Facebook page
The social services organization ACCESS has created a Spanish language Facebook page to provide information and better communication to a wider audience in Jackson County.
During the COVID-19 pandemic, the Latino community has been disproportionately impacted and has reduced access to care and resources, ACCESS said.
“Our organization is creating more resources in Spanish for our Latinx community,” said Luis Sanchez, marketing and information technology strategist and co-chair of the ACCESS Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Committee. “Several members of our amazing team are working on translating flyers, exploring opportunities to provide Spanish services at our pantries and adapting our way of thinking to help our neighbors. We hope that this first step becomes a valuable resource for our Latinx community.”
Latinx is a recently coined gender-neutral word.
