Elections

 

Este es nuestro último episodio de la tempoarada, así que decidimos hablar acerca de la importancia del voto. Tu voto cuenta. Este año que viene mas personas de color van a ser elegibles para el voto que en años pasados. According to the Pew Research Center, the 2020 election will mark the first time that Hispanics will be the largest racial or ethnic minority group in the electorate.

Aqui una historia desde Chicago. Our collaborator Judith Ruiz-Branch talk about how although Chicago is a very liberal city with a diverse population that breeds inclusividad, there are still some Latino families, many undocumented, that have completely disconnected themselves from the current political landscape. Whether it’s due to disinterest or fear, there are many reasons why they choose to remain invisible, even in a city like Chicago. 

With 2020 around the corner, many Latino Journalists find themselves making the decision to cover or not the elections. Many decide to become activists while others don’t share their personal opinions on politics.

In this episodio, I talk to fellow journalist Judith Ruiz-Branch about what is like para Latinos cubrir a Latinos in the media and how it can be frustrating and empowering to tell the stories of our community. Escucha.

This season we’re staying on top of two major topics - the census and the 2020 elections.

In this episodio, our co producer Mareea Thomas and I thought we would dive right into the census. Many millennials haven’t filled the census either so for this episodio we’ll fill out the 2020 census sample questionnaire we found on census.gov. 

The census can be confusing for some, pero cuando le añades misinformation, it can get a lot trickier. El censo has made an effort to fight against misinformation on social media. And it got plenty of attention.
