Hello mi gente,
Welcome back to The Latinx Collective where we’ve celebrated stories, perspectives and the impact and contributions of Latinos since 2018. Today is the first day of Latinx/Hispanic Heritage Month - would love to know what this month means to you (if it means anything at all!). Reply to this email with your thoughts…
Before we get to the newsletter, some quick updates:
  1. Launched an Etsy storefront TODAY! Excited for your thoughts on this first batch of stickers.🛍 And if you purchase one (or a few!) post it or tag us on Instagram or Twitter.
  2. The latest post on La Revista is now LIVE, spotlighting 5 amazing Latinx trailblazers in the sports industry. Check it out here and if you like it, share it. 🏐 Shout out to our editorial intern Bianca Alvarez - she just wrapped up with us to head back to Penn State University - woohoo class of 2020! 🏅
  3. Just opened Venmo & Cash App accounts so supporters can contribute to the production over here that’s led by a fully-Latinx team, from our graphic designers and web developers, to freelance writers and paid editorial interns. I believe in paying everyone fairly, even if we’re not currently profitable! Treat us to a cafecito? 🙏Venmo: @thelatinxcollective. Cash App: $thelatinxcollective
Con cariño,
Elisabeth Rosario

I love to highlight Latinx trailblazers and entrepreneurs so I’m bringing back the Spotlight series! Today we celebrate Dr. Oriel Maria Siu, who was born in Honduras to a Chinese-Nicaraguan father and a Salvadoran-Guatemalan-Pipil mother. Dr Siu is an ethnic studies professor who earned her PhD from UCLA and views each word in her children’s books as border-smashing, anti-racist, decolonial acts of love. Here’s a great article in the Los Angeles Times featuring her line of books and mission. Visit her website to learn more about her “Rebeldita” book series. Filled with empowering rhymes, captivating Illustrations, and lessons to live by, the character Rebeldita educates, inspires and empowers.  📖
