👨🏻🙋🏽👱🏾🙎🏿👧🏻The Latinx Collective: Issue #19
By Elisabeth Rosario • Issue #19 • View online
Hey mi gente,
Welcome to this week’s issue of The Latinx Collective, a refreshing look at the every day contributions and achievements of Latinx people. Every week you’ll see uplifting stories about the community and at least one Latinx-owned project or business to support.
P.S. I’m reminding you again that MONEY=POWER and people of color have the buying power to drive change. Be conscious of where you spend your money and where you focus your attention and energy (because views, likes + shares = money too!). Don’t let the wrong things drain you because it’s then harder to find energy and time to put towards actually making change. Take care of yourselves.💖
Con cariño,
Elisabeth Rosario
