Vaccine Accessibility & Health Equit

Petition to Vaccinate the Latinx Community

Latinx Equity Network is leading a statewide initiative to make the COVID-19 vaccine more accessible to the Latinx and Migrant communities while pushing for more healthy equity in Washington. Please share our concerns with Washington State Officials by participating in our petitions. Currently, we are using two platforms in order to get this issue in front of the eyes of policymakers. Change.org and ResistBot (text) allow for our petition to be shared automatically once you sign up on either platform. Thank you for helping us work to solve this issue. The lack of accessibility to some of Washington's most at-risk groups is appalling and requires swift action to preserve the health and well being of the whole state.
