  • 1.  Assessing needs of Spanish-speaking communities?

    Posted 12-20-2021 07:54 AM
    Hi folks! Who is running programs/projects to identify the needs of the Spanish-speaking community in your area?

    We're looking to take this on here in Austin (access to behavior resources in Spanish is extremely limited), but I'd like to talk to others about what they've done and what they've learned.

    Hello! We just got a grant from Petsmart to do a survey in some of Phoenix's Latinx communities (along with some free vaccine & microchip clinics). It's a whole year long project that we just started last month but it's all about barrier to access to vet care. I don't have any insight or tips to add yet but I definitely want to follow along with this thread and see how things are going for other people doing similar things.

    This is great to hear that there is work being put behind DEI initatives. I'd like to hear some examples too as I'm hoping to add Spanish language options to our website.
