Community presentation requests
It is crucial that we all stay informed on the latest information regarding COVID-19. The Speaker's Bureau provides presentations with the latest information, resources, and guidance's for COVID-19 to the community. We strive to provide culturally relevant presentations and provide answers that your community, business, or organization is looking for. Our goal is to ensure that all communities in King County have the knowledge they need to stay safe and healthy during this time.
We can work with you to provide your organization with a presentation about COVID-19 and any relevant topics that your community is looking for. We can provide presentation for any type of organization. In the past we have worked with community-based organizations, faith-based organizations, businesses (large and small), and local and state government to provide webinars on various topics related to COVID-19 including:
- Latest COVID-19 information and guidance
- Public Charge for immigrant and refugee communities
- COVID-19 information for social workers
- Children's health
- School and education
- Food banks
- Townhall presentations
- And more
If your topic isn't listed above, do not hesitate to ask. We are also able to provide presentations in various languages.
If you do not have an online platform to use for your webinar, we will be able to provide one for you. Currently the County is using Zoom for the majority of its webinars given Zoom’s greater accessibility. We will be able to create a Zoom link for your webinar and provide tech support. This service is only reserved for organizations that do not have access to an online platform. Please ask us if you need this service.

The purpose of the call is to facilitate a conversation between community members and Public Health — Seattle & King County. This is an opportunity for Public Health to hear from trusted community advocates and to provide resources about COVID-19 prevention as well as tools on how to deal with the stay-at-home order. The calls are coordinated by native Spanish speakers who are familiar with the culture and are established community members as well as public servants.

During these challenging and uncertain times, it is imperative to establish connections with all communities, but especially communities who historically the system has failed to serve.
Right now, immigrant communities are facing so many additional uncertainties, so it is our duty to eliminate language barriers and provide crucial information in culturally relevant and accessible ways.
In the long run, this investment can save lives and will result in a thriving and healthier community."
