Affiliate Digest 

April 17, 2018

Dear UnidosUS Affiliates,

As we continue our co-branding efforts, we invite you to join us in lifting a unified voice for the Latino community by engaging in our co-branding efforts. The following questionnaire will help us evaluate where the UnidosUS Affiliate network is at meeting the goals we shared this fall. We do not expect that all Affiliates will meet all the co-branding examples we shared with you, rather your participation will help us determine what barriers remain and help measure progress towards goals. 

Click here to complete the questionnaire

For your participation in this questionnaire, your agency will be entered into an opportunity drawing to win (1) $500 stipend and (2) UnidosUS 2017 Conference registrations.

Please review the UnidosUS and Affiliate Co-Branding Guidelines as well as the UnidosUS Affiliate Logo for reference and guidance.

Second-round drawing will take place on June 1st, 2018.  Look at these excellent cobranding examples:
