Health Disparities Program

We want our Indigenous communities to be healthy and well. Our Health Disparities program supports Indigenous communities accessing health and navigation services in Fresno County. We focus on assisting our community in accessing COVID-19 vaccines, COVID-19 testing, blood pressure and glucose checks, medication refills, referrals within the community, and conducting case management. Additionally, we conduct monthly community meetings and host semi-monthly Rural Mobile Health Clinics in different rural towns in Fresno County.  

The Indigenous Interpreting Project

The Indigenous Interpreting Program is a dedicated initiative aimed at breaking down language barriers and improving access to essential services for the Indigenous communities from Oaxaca and Guerrero. We recognize that language should never be a barrier when receiving the support and care one needs, especially in critical areas like healthcare and legal assistance. The Indigenous Interpreting Program promotes equity, and improves the overall well-being of our Indigenous community. By offering interpreter services and informing our community of their language rights, we empower individuals to access the services they need, make informed decisions, and live healthier, more secure lives.Together, we bridge the gap, ensuring that no one in our community is left unheard orunderserved because of the language they speak.

Labor Rights

Our Labor Rights Program trains and organizes workers.  Through trainings on labor rights, workers are able to  identify workplace violations and submit complaints to the appropriate agency to improve their working conditions and wages. Through this work, we have established worker committees in Salinas, Fresno, Madera, and Tulare, where workers have monthly meetings. Interpretation in indigenous languages such as Mixteco, Zapoteco, Triqui, Chatino, and Tlapaneco is provided during our monthly meetings.
