h stores in virtually every community, 63 percent of all Americans, 75 percent of African Americans, and 78 percent of Latinos live within 3 miles of a Walgreens, and Walgreens fills one out of every three prescriptions in the country.

In the letter, the leaders of the NUL and LULAC emphasize the need to discuss the dispute, stating, "It is with great concern that we contact Express Scripts regarding Express Scripts' unwillingness to reach a fair and reasonable agreement with Walgreens in your recent contract negotiations. We strongly urge you to put Walgreens' customers, your customers and the health of our communities at the forefront of this issue."

An agreement is necessary to protect access to pharmacy services for hundreds of millions of Americans.
