Immigrant Communities and Effective Risk Communication in COVID-19


Building on strategies of immigrant-serving agencies and a collaborative hub in Houston, this Working Group will analyze communication to serve immigrant communities during COVID-19. It will focus first on communications involving agencies in the collaborative, and with government and funders. Second, it will explore communication with immigrant communities, examining accessibility, digital access and literacy, and trust of sources. This group will put its research into practice among organizations and within communities.
