Latinx Ministry in the COVID-19 Pandemic

In summer 2021, Yazmin Munoz (NHS’22) conducted research at the Sacred Heart Center in Richmond, Virginia, through the Education and Social Justice Project, a joint project of the Berkley Center for Religion, Peace, and World Affairs and the Center for Social Justice Research, Teaching and Service at Georgetown University. From volunteering in their food bank to talking with staff, families, and donors, she enjoyed immersing herself in this Jesuit nonprofit’s commitment to the Latinx community. Although the organization’s programming previously revolved around health and education, during the COVID-19 pandemic, they created an Emergency Relief Program. The program helped Yazmin understand the importance of addressing the unique needs affecting the Latinx community during times of crisis in the United States.
