WHAT: Make phone calls to Watts residents to make vaccine access easier and ensure no community is left behind in the fight against COVID-19. 

ABOUT WATTS EMPOWERMENT CENTER: The Watts Empowerment Center is committed to the children, youth, and families within Watts Housing Projects and offers a broad variety of resources and services to help strengthen the local community. 

VOLUNTEER RESPONSIBILITIES:  You will be trained how to and then make phone calls to Watts residents to tell them how to easily access the vaccine in their area and about the financial incentives now available to those getting vaccinated.

IMPACT: While the countywide vaccination rate increases (64% as of June 3rd), Watts residents are still well below the threshold for herd immunity (44%). With vaccination efforts slowing and even closing, it's critical that these populations are not left behind. Similar phonebanking inititatives have been proven to increase vaccination rates in undervaccinated areas.

VOLUNTEER REQUIREMENTS: Access to a computer with internet and a phone.
