As a part of our commitment and responsibilities as an ally, we intend to highlight and amplify Black and Brown voices within our community. Each week we will be introducing you to a new guest who will be diving into important topics about the #BlackLivesMatter movement.

This week, we connect with singer, songwriter and actress Becky G to discuss the importance of voting in the Latinx community, the incredible work the Latino Community Foundation is doing, and her passion for spreading awareness for the cause through her podcast, @EnLaSalaPodcast. We discuss:

  • Some of the incredible guests she’s had on her podcast, including America Ferrera and Democratic Party VP candidate and current Senator Kamala Harris, some highlights of those conversations and the importance of voting this election year;
  • The power of the Latinx community vote and in particular the women;
  • Her perspective on young adults participating in the election process and its importance;
  • The importance of Hispanic Heritage Month;
  • The Latino Community Foundation and the work they’ve done in the community;
  • Finish Line donates $20,000 to the Latino Community Foundation…and more
