WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. -- La Fuente, a coalition of organizations committed to providing current resources and information to the Spanish speaking population in Westchester, will have a presentation by Natalia Diaz, a New York State Affordable Care Act navigator and organizing manager at Young Invincibles, on Wednesday, Sept. 17, 10 a.m. at Westchester Independent Living Services (WILC).

As an affordable care navigator,  Diaz helps people enroll in the New York State of Health Marketplace and brings knowledge about the Affordable Care Act to the public.

Her work at Young Invincibles involves engaging young adults on issues such as health care, higher education and jobs.

Diaz also works on the campaign Black and Brown People Vote (BlackandBrownPeopleVote.org), an initiative to empower people of color to register, vote and remain politically active locally, statewide and nationally. 

The public is welcome. Organizations working with the Spanish-speaking population or organizations that would like to develop more effective outreach are encouraged to attend.

Resources for community organizations on the New York State of Health affordable health-care marketplace and voter registration will be available.
