Empoderate

 

Mon. 4/2 8:30a: There are more than 30 LGBTQ youth centers across the U.S., but few target the Spanish-speaking community.

That’s why La Clinica del Pueblo, a community health center in the predominantly Latino neighborhood of Columbia Heights, Washington DC opened Empoderate. It’s a bilingual center that provides counseling, support, and free HIV testing to LGBTQ youth in the area. This piece was produced by Lily Percy, edited by Maria Martin & mixed by Claire Schoen. It’s part of a year-long series examining health issues facing Latinos.
