Norberto Martinez, the founder and original producer of the LMC, joins the crew to recap the high’s and low’s of a truly frustrating year. We speak about the Coronavirus, the collapse of the US healthcare system, how Black Lives Matter gained ground in Latin America, and a review of some of our favorite shows. Let’s hope for a better day in 2021.
In the latest installment to our Undocumented & LGBTQ series, the LMC spends the hour with Oscar Lopez on the challenges faced by the Latinx LGBTQ community in the Rio Grande Valley region of Texas. Oscar Lopez is the CEO and national advocacy director for Poderosos, based in the Rio Grande Valley, Texas.
Often overlooked yet at the center in the fight against environmental racism, the LMC spends the hour with Jayson Porter and Yoalli Rodriguez on the Afro-Mexicano struggle for social and environmental justice. Jayson Porter is a PhD candidate of Mexican environmental history @ Northwestern University in Illinois and Yoalli Rodriguez is a PhD candidate in Latin American Studies @ the University of Texas in Austin.
