For the next two weeks we’ll be sharing why current Monthly Sustainers support Futuro Media. Here is our testimonial from Laura:

"I first experienced Futuro Media through the podcast In The Thick in 2017. At the time, whenever Trump vociferated his racist rhetoric, regardless of his target, he would mention something racist about Jews as well. Reporters and commentators didn't seem to notice nor did they acknowledge this. It was depressing that this casual antisemitism was so readily accepted and it made me feel both unsafe and disenfranchised.

But In The Thick noticed. They acknowledged and addressed this antisemitism. Not just once in one podcast, but they discussed it whenever it occurred, regardless of the main topic of the podcast.

I was already enjoying the points of view of the contributors to In The Thick. This reinforced for me that Futuro Media was a good source of news, information, and opinions and that I belonged here. So, I went to your website and signed up for a recurring donation since you do not offer paid subscriptions. Then, I explored more of your content and added Latino Rebels and Latino USA to my list of regularly listened-to podcasts."

Please consider joining Laura and making a recurring gift to Futuro Media! Your $5, $10, $15 or more gift per month means so much to us. Give by 6/25 & we will thank you on our social media channels!

For the next two weeks we’ll be sharing why current Monthly Sustainers support Futuro Media. Here is our testimonial from Héctor:

"I support Futuro Media because they treat the stories of Latin American people with great nuance, and more importantly, with compassion. And the important issue that I think, very often, we ignore, it's who tells our stories. When these are just viewed mostly from the white gaze, they may not understand our struggles, or the way that we react to certain things. They don't have this experience. And Futuro Media, with their team of reporters, try to amplify, especially, the voices that are in this moment telling these stories, these tales. And I support the stories being told by the people that are actually experiencing this." - Héctor González

"The first thing I did after reading Once I Was You by Maria Hinojosa, I donated to Futuro Media and became a monthly sustainer. I had to. I wanted to make sure I did what I could to support an organization that knows how important it is to tell the various stories that represent and affect the Latino community. My community. By consistently donating my hard earned money (because I definitely work hard to earn it), I want founder Maria Hinojosa and the Futuro Media team to know I am proud to support great podcasts like Latino USA, Anything for Selena and Suave. The work they do is important and inspiring."

Now playing a new Latino USA podcast!

LISTEN HERE: http://bit.ly/racelatinidad

More than a year after Floyd’s death, we are joined by two Afrolatinx cousins: Umar Williams, who is a musician and radio host living in the Twin Cities, and Alexander Newton, a strategy and analytics consultant who lives in Washington, D.C.

In the first part of the episode, they discuss their experiences with the Black Lives Matter protests in their respective cities, their reactions to Derek Chauvin’s guilty verdict, and their thoughts on the nation-wide reaction to George Floyd’s murder.

In the second half of the episode, their frank conversation shifts to their childhood, learning Spanish, and the intersection of their Black and Latinx identity. Their conversation is marked by the different experiences they had growing up. While their mothers were sisters and grew up in Panama before immigrating to the U.S., Umar's father is from Guyana, in South America, and Alex’s father is from Ghana, in Africa. Umar, who is the oldest, grew up in Brooklyn, while Alex grew up in the suburbs of New Jersey. Their vastly different experiences marked the way they identified with and understood their Latindad. “People aren’t used to seeing a Black Panamanian,” said Alex.

The cousins dive into their experiences with racism, the unique struggles faced by Black Latinos, and growing up in a family that taught them that “Black is beautiful.”

“I listen to Latino USA and In The Thick for so many reasons. The stories are deep, nuanced, and expose me to perspectives and ideas that I have not come in contact with before and that I don't hear elsewhere. The guests are incredible and varied jumping across innumerable topics. The hosts are incredibly passionate and their interactions between each other and their guests are always interesting and often motivating. The news is always delved into in a way I do not hear on other news programs and with an attention to detail and context that I find incredibly important but often overlooked. I also just genuinely believe Maria and Julio clearly love what they do and it makes me look forward to hearing what they have chosen to share with listeners every week.”

Now playing a new Latino USA podcast

LISTEN HERE: http://bit.ly/iamacholo

In the United States, the word “cholo” invokes images of gang members, lowriders, and tattoos. But in South America, cholo or “cholito” can either be a term of endearment or a racial slur used against people of Indigenous ancestry. How come one word be used to describe two very different groups of people on opposite sides of the world? We take a journey, from the streets of California to the Andes of Peru, to find the roots of an ancient and harmful term that some people are, nonetheless, reclaiming as an element of pride and identity.

We interview Michael Flores, a former gang member and cholo from Los Angeles. He shares his experience with being a cholo and how that led to his imprisonment—and eventually, his acting career.

We’ll also hear from Marco Avilés, a journalist and the acclaimed author of two books on Andean cholo culture called "De dónde venimos los cholos" and "No soy tu cholo." He explains how growing up he used to run away from the term “cholo,” but now wears it like a badge of honor.

“As a first-generation college student, it was tough navigating a system that wasn’t set up for non-traditional college students to succeed. Hearing stories about survival, strength, determination, and hustle gave me the courage to persevere. Today, these stories remind me to seek out truth, accountability, justice, and community.”

Hello hope this message finds you well. We are an event management company with over 30 years of service in the travel and tourism industry. Pre covid, we were organizing group events here in NYC and Nationwide. Our restaurant partners are a key component of our operations as we always rely on them to offer our clients an unforgettable dining experience. Now we want to come through for them. That is why we are conducting a fundraiser that will support the restaurant industry and workers. In conjunction with the Independent Restaurant coalition and ROAR which is through Robinhood foundation, we want to make a difference. I want to ask how you can help us spread the word about this campaign. The industry still needs our help and together we can show the support that the restaurant establishments and workers need. I am available to further discuss, you can reach me at the number below. This is the link to our campaign https://www.5afundraiser.com/ Thank you so much!
