Covid-19, Immigration, and HIV – May 7 NMAC Hangout

Damián Cabrera-CandelariaThis week’s webinar is “Intersections Between COVID-19 and Immigration: Challenges and Ways to Fight Them.” It was put together by Damián Cabrera-Candelaria. Damian is a Program Manager at NMAC’s Treatment Division. He started in April after the agency was in lockdown, so he is still in Puerto Rico waiting out COVID-19 to move to DC. I can’t imagine how difficult it is to start a new job during these challenging times. Damián, welcome to NMAC and thank you for understanding these are not typical times and we are all being challenged to do things in new and different ways. As an aside, I want to thank all of NMAC’s staff and all of the workers in our movement who continue to fight to end the HIV epidemic.

According to Damián, “In this week’s webinar we will be having a conversation about the challenges of immigrant communities amid the COVID-19 pandemic. Through this panel, Oscar López and Ángel Fabián will talk about the hurdles they have found in this emergency scenario, how their organizations are challenging them and what people can do to support these communities.”

Giving Tuesday
Today is Giving Tuesday Now, a new global day of giving and unity – in addition to the regularly scheduled Dec 1, 2020 Giving Tuesday – as an emergency response to the unprecedented need caused by COVID-19. Like all nonprofits and especially those in the HIV movement, NMAC faces challenges for the duration of the pandemic.

I know times are tough for many of us, but, if you are able, I’m asking you to show your support for NMAC’s vital work. Thank you in advance.

Yours in the struggle,

Paul Kawata
