Resources

Flyer of Spanish resources provided by the Latino Leadership CouncilRecursos en EspañolThe LLC’s mission is to not only build the skills of community members, but of the agencies and organizations that serve them.

We do not duplicate services, or compete with organizations that provide services, but rather fill the service gaps faced by Latino communities, work collaboratively to support existing services or to make them more culturally proficient for the Latino communities.

We are also pleased to provide links to our partners and encourage our community to visit these resources first.

Fotonovela

The Latino Leadership Council, working with Placer County, recently produced a fotonovela in English and Spanish that addresses some of the issues we often see with the families with whom we work. The fotonovela addresses problems at school, between spouses and between parents and kids. It also educates the reader about how promotoras and promotores can help with these issues and about resources available in the community.

Click on the links below to see the fotonovela in English or Spanish, or contact us to request hard copies to distribute in your community.

Medical Interpreter Cards

Seeking medical help when you don’t understand the language can be extremely difficult. Without the ability to ask questions and understand the diagnosis or the physician’s advice, non-English-speaking patients are unable to be active participants in their health care and suffer less optimal health outcomes because of it.

Latino Leadership Council Medical Interpreter CardsThe Latino Leadership Council has developed a card, small enough to fit in any wallet or purse, that advises users, in Spanish, about their rights to a qualified medical interpreter. More importantly, the backside of the card requests, in English, for the user to be provided with a medical interpreter. This makes it easy for someone to just show the back of the card to a medical provider without the language barriers or stigma associated with asking for help.

If your organization or community could benefit from having these cards, please let us know. We’ll be happy to give you as many as you need to distribute to your community.
