Boden has put together a COVID-19 Hispanic Public Relations Resource, an online guide to help brands connect with and support the Hispanic community during the crisis. The guide includes tips and insights for communications teams based on perspectives from key Hispanic stakeholders; a downloadable stakeholder list with names of journalists, influencers, organizations and healthcare experts who are trusted sources in the Hispanic community; and interviews with Hispanic journalists and influencers. The agency notes that a new survey from the Pew Research Center says Hispanics are more likely than Americans overall to see coronavirus as a major threat to their health and finances. “We are confident this resource will help brands broaden their message of health and wellness to the right stakeholders, helping them make a positive impact across the Hispanic community,” said Boden president and founder Natalie Boden.
