"We are thrilled to partner with The California Endowment's WE Connect program once again to help connect California's Spanish speaking community with the information they need to prepare for new opportunities under the new health law," said Monica Lozano, Chief Executive Officer at ImpreMedia. "The 1.2 million supplements will help families learn about important programs - from the Earned Income Tax Credit to Medi-Cal."
WE Connect will continue its statewide campaign to educate and enroll thousands of eligible California residents in affordable, quality health care by partnering with organizations across the state to host major health care enrollment and resources fairs.

About WE ConnectWE Connect, a program founded in 2005 by former First Lady of California Maria Shriver and now run by The California Endowment, empowers families in underserved communities to lead healthier and more financially secure lives by connecting them to resources such as the Earned Income Tax Credit, California's Healthy Families Program and CalFresh. This nationwide campaign connects those eligible with the information and tools they need to access these valuable resources. The program has successfully resulted in helping millions of Californians through its community events, web-based tools, public-private partnerships, and publications. Through a partnership with La Opinion, the nation's largest Spanish-speaking newspaper, WE Connect has developed four editions of a 24-page, full color, bilingual supplement that has been distributed to over 20 million Californians in need.
