City of Aurora’s Office of Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Presents - Julissa Soto of Servicios de la Raza

Please join us for an enlightening presentation about Colorado's diverse Latino/x community, presented by Julissa Soto of Servicios de la Raza. Julissa will share her personal journey as an immigrant, connecting lessons from her lived experiences with her current role as an activist and advocate for the Latino/x community. She will share about the community's experiences in access and utilization of health programs and services, and address myths and misconceptions. Julissa will also offer advice about enhancing outreach and support for Latinos in Colorado.

Julissa is a trailblazer in programming serving Spanish-speaking new immigrants and has more than two decades of nonprofit experience and innovative insight. Her background includes over 19 years of success in leading and managing evidence-based prevention programs serving new immigrants. She immigrated to the United States nearly 21 years ago from the state of Michoacán in central Mexico, so she understands the health needs of Colorado Latinos and the importance of reaching out to them. Through her work at Servicios de la Raza, she's responsible for supporting the work of promotoras, contract workers, and staff to succeed in serving the community.

Again, our meeting will be hosted virtually by Joshua Nicholas with the City of Aurora’s Office of Diversity, Equity & Inclusion in the Community Relations Division. It will be on Friday, April 16th from 9:00 am - 10:45 am.

Please RSVP by email to Joshua to receive the Webex meeting information. His email address is jnichola@auroragov.org.
