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. HSTF is the managing partner of Boston’s Latin Quarter, which is a culturally, racially, and economically diverse cultural district located in Boston's Jamaica Plain neighborhood that aims to preserve and uplift its rich Afro-Latin history and culture.


Cojuelos’ Productions is a Consulting Agency that celebrates all artistic expression through creative and innovative, diverse and culturally oriented programming and curated experiences.
