NEW YORK, March 26, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- We Are All
Human Foundation (WAAH), a non-profit focused on diversity,
inclusion and equity, along with more than 75 national Hispanic
leaders, launched today the "Hispanic Recovery Plan," a
clearinghouse for information and action to support and
protect Hispanics whose businesses and jobs have been affected
by the coronavirus pandemic. The initiative is part of the
"Hispanic Star," a collective platform to unify Hispanics in the US
and celebrate their contributions to the country.
The Hispanic Recovery Plan is a platform to
communicate, organize and mobilize individuals nationwide, unify
efforts to mitigate the immediate economic impact of COVID-19 and
set a path for a solid and speedy recovery, particularly for
Hispanic small and medium enterprises, entrepreneurs, and
independent workers, who contribute more than $700 billion in sales to the economy annually,
and employ more than 2.3 million people.
To drive tangible impact in the community, the Hispanic
Recovery Plan will provide access to key leaders and subject
matter experts via daily informational webinars on health, policy,
business and other topics of interest for Hispanics during this
time of crisis. The platform will enable a marketplace for talent
and services to provide visibility and available opportunities.
Leaders will appeal to corporate America to support the Hispanic
community in a number of ways, including advocating to promote
retention and increasing Hispanic supplier diversity.
The initiative also will empower the more than 5,000 Hispanic
Star ambassadors nationwide to create "Hispanic Star Hubs" to share
information and take action on local priorities.
"This is a time for Hispanics to unify efforts and take action
together; COVID-19 is already affecting us all, but Hispanics will
be disproportionately impacted," said Claudia Romo Edelman, Founder and CEO of the We
Are All Human Foundation. Ms. Romo
Edelman has been invited to join the United Nation efforts
to support global mobilization for COVID-19. "We understand the
importance of coordinated action to protect each other today, but
to also have a recovery plan so that we can get back on our feet
quickly tomorrow," Romo Edelman
Romo Edelman is a former UN
diplomat with decades of experience in global mobilization for
organizations including the World Economic Forum, the United
Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) and the Global Fund
to fight AIDS, TB & Malaria. She has led global campaigns
during other crises and pandemics.
