IDT again joins forces with LULAC to empower new Latinos in the U.S.
NEWARK, New Jersey, June 3, 2019 /PRNewswire-HISPANIC PR WIRE/ — IDT Corporation (NYSE: IDT), a leading provider of prepaid communication and payment services through its BOSS Revolution brand, today announced the launch of a second informative video series prepared in collaboration with the League of United Latin American Citizens (LULAC) to assist recently arrived Hispanic immigrants in the United States.
The second BOSS Cares video initiative is intended to help newly arrived immigrants engage civically in their communities, to raise awareness of the many scams targeting immigrants and to offer recommendations on how to avoid scammers.
“We launched the BOSS Cares Video Series to address some of the most common scams that impact the Latino community. According to the Federal Trade Commission, Latinos are among the communities most victimized by scams and fraud and among the least likely to report the crime,” said Jessica Poverene, IDT’s Vice President of Marketing.
The videos cover the following topics:
- A New Life in the United States, How to Be a Part of My Community. takes a deep dive into ways in which recent immigrants can become part of their communities after arriving in the U.S.
- I’m a New Immigrant: How Can I avoid Being a Victim of a Scam? provides details of scams targeting Hispanic immigrants
The series features Walter Tejada, Community Activist and Member of LULAC, discussing the topics covered throughout the videos.
“It has been an incredible experience to be part of such an important project that is raising awareness about the civic participation of the Hispanic immigrant community. More than anything, I have seen that civic education is power when it comes to living and being successful in the United States,” said Mr. Tejada.
