November Means Thanksgiving…and Diabetes Awareness Month PDF Print E-mail

Every November we celebrate Thanksgiving. However, November is also Diabetes Awareness Month. With only a week to go before everybody’s favorite food-centered holiday, HF is reflecting on the fact that it would be almost impossible to find a family untouched by diabetes. During your Thanksgiving celebrations (and meals), we encourage you to not only give thanks, but to also think about your health and your own risk for diabetes.

DACA Day of Action Touches the Lives of Hundreds PDF Print E-mail

After an intensive two-week long campaign to inform our community about the federal Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, Telemundo 47 and Hispanic Federation held a tri-state DACA Day of Action on October 11th to help eligible DREAMers apply and work to secure temporary relief from deportation and two-year work permits. Under the banner of "DACA: ¡Decídete, Actúa, Consíguela, Ahora!" (Decide, Act, Get It, Now!), our multi-platform public awareness campaign highlighted the stories of several hard-working and inspirational DREAMers on Noticiero Telemundo 47, Acesso Total and Enfoque. These DREAMers, which had previously obtained DACA status thanks to the support provided by the Federation and its member organizations, were also highlighted in several El Diario La Prensa columns. HF’s Linea Informativa hotline received over 1,000 DACA-related calls as a result of this campaign.
