Alianza Americas teamed up with the Latino Commission on AIDS and the Mexican side of the U.S.-Mexico Binational Health Commission Mobile Units to drive a project funded by the Center for Disease Control (CDC) to address health disparities in prevention, testing, vaccination and treatment for COVID-19 and other infectious diseases. We are working jointly to reach migrant and Latino communities by bridging the language and cultural gap.
Our mission is to create an inclusive, equitable and sustainable way of life for migrant communities living in the United States and across the Americas. We are committed to empowering community leaders, government agencies, labor organizers and faith based communities, to work transnationally to provide a more dignified and just way of life for all people living in the Americas.
COPAL seeks to unite Latinx people in Minnesota in an active grassroots communal democracy that builds racial, gender, social and economic justice across community lines. They work from Minneapolis, serving Latinx populations across the state of Minnesota. They have a database of over 30,000 Latinx community members and have been subcontracted by the Minnesota Department of Health as a COVID-19 Community Coordinator. Their bilingual hotline also connects Latinx persons with public and private resources.

Latino Commission on AIDS
The Latino Commission on AIDS is a non-profit organization founded in 1990 in response to the unmet need for HIV/AIDS prevention and care for Latinx/Hispanics. Our public health mission is to address the impact of the HIV/AIDS epidemic, in the context of addressing health disparities, by spearheading health advocacy, promoting health education, developing and replicating evidence-based programs for PLWHA and high-risk communities, and by building capacity across the public health sector and strategic partners nationally.
