Three Latinx organizations in Massachusetts, Hyde Square Task Force, Amplify Latinx, and Ágora Cultural Architects, come together to keep Latino culture buzzing with #CadenciaLatina: Performances from home.


On May 31st at 7 pm, Fabiola Mendez, a widely recognized Puerto Rican musician, will be playing the cuatro, the national instrument of Puerto Rico on Facebook Live. Fabiola has been playing the Cuatro since she was 6 years old and was the first student to graduate from Berklee College of Music with the Puerto Rican cuatro as her main instrument. Her incredible talents as a musician and performer have not gone unnoticed as she has been the recipient of various awards such as the Quincy Jones Award in 2016 and was the ambassador at the National Puerto Rican Day Parade in NYC in 2018. Tune in on Fabiola Mendez’s Facebook Page and enjoy this amazing performance from the safety of your home.

While we have your attention ;) : Let’s make sure Latinxs are seen and heard every day. Take the opportunity to visit https://2020census.gov/ and fill out the Census. Latinxs make up an undercounted group, which puts us at a disadvantage that could mean less funding and political voice.


About the organizations:


Amplify Latinx is a non-partisan, collaborative movement whose mission is to build Latinx economic and political power by significantly increasing Latinx civic engagement and representation in leadership positions across sectors.


Hyde Square Task Force's mission is to amplify the power, creativity, and voices of youth, connecting them to Afro-Latin culture and heritage so they can create a diverse, vibrant Latin Quarter and build a just, equitable Boston.
