Census.gov

Every ten years, the government of the United States of America issues a mandatory census to count the population.  The results of the census determine the number of seats that each state gets in the House of Representatives, the distribution of federal funds, and enforcement of voting rights laws. Now, the 2020 Census tiene una pregunta sobre citizenship. The Department of Justice requested that the Census Bureau reinstate a citizenship question on the 2020 Census.

In this episode, co-producer Mareea Thomas talks to Paola about her experience when living in a house where domestic violence was present, about fleeing to New York and on how her family finally left.

QPM? S2 EP 5: La importancia of education for Latinos

Aug 1, 2018
Paola Marizan

En este episodio hablamos de la importancia de la educación en familias Latinas. Getting a degree is not easy for a lot of immigrants, first generation graduates and for low income families. First, navigating through the system to sign up, llenar la FAFSA, escoger the right classes, the scholarships and all the resources that they often don't know about, etc. And then the difference in cultures, the pressure of finishing school and taking care of their families.

Mareea Thomas

The experience of 1.5 generation immigrants, a term used to describe people who arrived in the U.S. as children and adolescents, is a unique one. Unlike their first-generation parents or U.S.-born siblings, their identity is split. That in between. Los que hablan más inglés que Español o que a lo mejor no saben mucho acerca de la cultura de sus padres.
