This mask represents where I come from. I am from Little Village. I got this mask when I was tabling at a community event where I got to share the importance of Little Village residents deserving the right to breathe and fighting against environmental racism happening in the community.

Other people were sharing about the importance of filling out the census and that it determines funding and resources for the community.

The COVID-19 Masking Project was developed by the UIC Latino Cultural Center (LCC) in partnership with the UIC Asian American Resource and Cultural Center (AARCC) to engage students, faculty, staff, and community members in a creative and meaningful way during the COVID-19 pandemic.
