“As a Futuro Media newbie, I mostly got the joy of just being a Latino USA listener this year (often on my car while on reporting trips). One of my favorite episodes this year was ‘Love & Walkouts’ by Janice Llamoca — about Bobby Verdugo and Yoli Ríos and the East L.A. Walkouts in 1968. I still remember getting chills listening to this on my way home after weeks working on a story in Mexico. Maybe because I had spent a lot of time alone and I’d been thinking a lot about connection, and those invisible ties that bind us to each other, to strangers. About the past we leave behind when we migrate and the future we can forge together. Anyway, it really hit for me. Plus, it was a nice reminder that sometimes the struggle for progress is better with someone fighting at your side.” - Julieta Martinelli, Producer, on “Love & Walkouts.” Listen here: https://buff.ly/2Q8Vrov

Looking back at 2019, In The Thick Producer Nicole Rothwell noted the Domestic Care Movement roundtable with Ai-jen Poo, executive director of the National Domestic Workers Alliance and Alexsis Rogers, state director for Care in Action in Virginia: “I loved this roundtable that took a look at an under-covered movement that is inspiring domestic workers as voters and candidates in 2019 and for the 2020 electoral cycle. Ai-jen broke down the history of this movement and Alexsis brought this local Virginia context that hints at what could happen in next year’s election.”

Nicole also loved all of the live shows and podcast workshops they staged over the past year. “I got to visit Texas for the first time where we got to eat lots of breakfast tacos.” But the real magic came from the Rio Grande Valley live show. “[We heard] all about Borderland life from Beatrix Lestrange, dragtavist and community organizer, and Derick Garcia, Local NBC23 News Lower Valley reporter.”
