“Coming together, creating change”
We Are Community
The Milwaukee Latino Health Coalition has brought together professionals from various organizations and community leaders from all walks of life. We are creating space for everyday people to discover and use their leadership skills to improve health in our communities. We believe that by increasing collaboration between organizations and community leaders, we will improve the health of the Latino community and the larger community in general.
We Are Powerful
The MLHC is building collective power to move individuals and communities to better health. We are responsible for identifying issues that most affect our health and taking action to address those issues. We believe that when we organize our communities around the same issues, we will be more powerful to effect the change we want.
We Are Holistic
The MLHC recognizes that health is determined by a variety of factors. In order to be healthy, we need to implement a comprehensive strategy to address the issues of our community, such as access to care, immigration, socio-economic status, education, built environment, and racism. We expect to live in a community where there is equal distribution of resources to ensure that everyone has opportunities for complete physical, mental and social well being.
The Milwaukee Latino Health Coalition is a collaboration of individuals and organizations dedicated to promoting health and wellness, reducing health disparities, eliminating stigma, and striving for social justice through education, advocacy, research, and sharing of resources.
A Latino community with access to equitable and culturally appropriate healthcare services and resources which foster health and well-being.
