In 1998, JJ Velazquez was sentenced to life for the murder of a police officer in Harlem, New York. The twenty-one-year-old father had an alibi that day, yet was placed in a lineup and identified as the shooter. Since then, identifying witnesses have recanted their testimony that JJ was the shooter, but there is no evidence placing JJ at the scene. In fact, new evidence points away from JJ. The real killer is still out there and JJ has been in prison for over twenty years.

But the Munduruku are a warrior people defined by their fierceness and tenacity. They have approached this struggle as they have all their battles. Whether against miners, loggers, and invaders of a different stripe: without reservations.

Pregnancy comes with all kinds of questions, but the journey to pregnancy and the mishaps along the way are often overlooked or taboo in the Latino community. How can we as a community help break the silences surrounding some of the more difficult aspects of pregnancy? Maria Hinojosa sits down with producer Jeanne Montalvo, who is currently pregnant, and certified birth doula Elizabeth Perez to discuss all things pregnancy—the highs, the lows, the miscarriages, the triumphs, and having babies during the COVID-19 pandemic.

At Futuro Media, we are committed to telling stories often overlooked by mainstream media. There are 3,141 counties in the United States, and 151 of them have a majority of POC residents according to the Pew Research Center.

These are the communities that Futuro Media wants to shine a light on, because everyone deserves to have their stories told, and represented correctly.

Will you support journalism that is highlighting POC communities?

Futuro Media's Community Podcast Lab was piloted in Boston in the fall of 2018 and Hartford in the spring of 2020. Partnering with local arts and community groups and local public radio station, Futuro Media delivered a 15-week course focused on elevating the stories and skills of people of color from these two cities.

The Lab has trained fourteen people of color on how to create a powerful voice through podcasting. And coming later this year, there will be an Akron Community Podcast Lab cohort.

Futuro Media is committed to bringing the Community Podcast Lab to Akron to help capture and broadcast the city’s underserved narratives, and to tell the world what makes the city tick. Do you support having more POC voices in the media? Give to ensure Futuro Media's projects continue!

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.

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!
