Allyship And #BlackLivesMatter: A Conversation Across Cultures - Latino USA

Monthly Sustainer Amanda shared her favorite 2020 Latino USA episode with us. Here is what she said:

“I am consistently impressed by Latino USA’s ability to tell stories I can’t hear anywhere else, like this episode featuring four young people discussing Latino allyship and Black Lives Matter. News orgs so rarely air the voices of youth, especially youth of color!”

When she was 9, Xiomara Torres fled the civil war in her home country of El Salvador and came to the U.S. As a child she adjusted to her new life in East Los Angeles before she was removed from her family and put into foster care—where she spent six years of her life moving from home to home.
Now, she's the subject of a local play in Oregon titled, "Judge Torres." In this edition of “How I Made It,” Judge Torres shares how she overcame the hurdles of the foster system and made her way to the Oregon Circuit Court.

As results rolled in on and after Election Day, the so-called “Latino vote” made headlines, but the story was largely about how the vote didn’t necessarily go as predicted. It turned into a major lesson from the 2020 election, but it’s one that Latinos have known for years: the idea of a single “Latino vote” is a myth. Latinos and Latinas across the United States draw from different histories that have shaped their different policy interests, ideologies, and personal experiences. At the polls, that often translates into casting a ballot for candidates that have reached out to communities directly, engaged with their concerns, and earned their votes.

We take a closer look at the states of Florida and Arizona, discussing the crucial voters who swung the results towards their respective candidates’ favor.

Like numerous non-profits across the country, Futuro Media has been dealt a hard hand by the onset of COVID-19. Our podcast In The Thick was just about to venture out on a national tour of live shows that would have highlighted conversations within local communities, and Election 2020 coverage. Since large gatherings have not been possible in the last six months, the In The Thick team pivoted to virtual events, that while not the same, still give the audience the essence of what a live In The Thick show is.

We would like nothing more to be on the road and meeting our listeners, but virtual events will likely be the course of action for the foreseeable future. These live shows take planning and funds to produce. Would you consider a gift to help us produce an In The Thickk LIVE show?

On March 14th 2020, Martha Escudero and her two daughters became the first family to occupy one of over a hundred vacant homes in El Sereno, Los Angeles. Some people call them squatters, but they call themselves the Reclaimers.

The Reclaimers are occupying houses that belong to the California Department of Transportation, who planned to demolish them in order to build a freeway through this largely latinx and immigrant neighborhood.

This is the story of one of these houses, and its residents, past and present, who have fought to make it their home.

Why do Latinos support Trump? Many people have asked this question since 2016, when after launching his campaign by calling Mexican immigrants rapists, Trump still won almost a third of the Latino vote. Polls indicate that Trump could do it again—or even increase his support among Latino voters in 2020. In this episode, we talk to historian Geraldo Cadava and to longtime Latino Republicans to understand why roughly a third of Latino voters have supported Republican presidential candidates ever since the 1970s.

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!
