FULL RELEASE: LATINX CONSORTIUM FOR ACTION (LCA) ANNOUNCES CREATION OF NEW COVID-19 EMERGENCY RELIEF FUND FOR THE LATINX COMMUNITY IN DANE COUNTY
Latinx are the largest non-white racial/ethnic group in Dane County, WI (35,000) and make up close to 70% of the community in Madison and Fitchburg. This community is uniquely vulnerable to the COVID-19 crisis - 70% of Latinx are renters and almost two out of every five work in the service industry in Dane County. Moreover, nearly 50% of Latinx are uninsured in Wisconsin.
This is why we are coming forward now, together, as a consortium of Latinx serving organizations, to announce the creation of a Latinx Consortium for Action (LCA) Emergency Relief Fund that specifically focuses on the needs of the Latinx community.. The fund will prioritize funding emergency relief for our most vulnerable populations: undocumented Latinx workers and small immigrant-owned businesses.
