Our good friends at the must-read website, Latino Rebels, have launched a foundation.
Per the Latino Rebels Foundation website, it’s vision is “to live in a country where Latinos are admired as patriotic, hard-working and productive American citizens.”
And its mission is to “positively impact the perceptions of Latinos, to defend the community against negative stereotypes and Latino bigotry, and to substantially increase Latino representation in the media and entertainment sectors by building a pipeline of highly talented and socially conscious Latinos.”
That’s something I can get behind for sure. Help the cause by volunteering or contributing here. ** UPDATE: See comment below for information about the scholarships Latino Rebels has in mind for undergraduate and graduate students!
