Spanish Language Video

This 16 minute COVID-19 Spanish language video was created by a six-woman group including three Immigrant Action Group members - Wynn Lewis, Elizabeth McMahon and Carol Kilpatrick - along with support from many activists across the country. The video is about protecting yourself and family from the Coronavirus.

The project was started when the group realized there was a scarcity of resources in Spanish about COVID-19 as well as that those not tied into the news and/or aren't readers may be missing the important guidelines and updates about COVID-19.

It includes two women talking together. One is an incredible Chicana activist, Maria Christina-Lopez, an immigrants’ right organizer here in New Mexico. She speaks alongside of Emily Vargas Riaño a knowledgeable public health specialist in Bogotá. They converse together in a clear, warm, educative way about their experiences and knowledge, presenting 7 key ways that people can protect themselves and their families from COVID 19.
