Few things have had more far-reaching, valuable, or enduring influence in this country than immigration. The Immigrant Heritage Month campaign, a new campaign by Welcome.us and FWD.us, is urging people to get reacquainted with this fact by highlighting the stories that make up our shared history. Earlier today, I had a conversation with some of the campaign's organizers and partners, who shared their plans to redefine the American Immigrant narrative.
Thanks Alida Garcia, Daniel Alejandro Leon-Davis, Roberto Frugone, and Felice Gorordo for sharing your insights!

Watch the full video: http://buff.ly/1Fz7mwG and share your own story using ‪#‎IHM2015‬!
 
By all accounts, immigrants have historically been the driving force of America. Yet instead of being celebrated, they have become some politicians’ favorite piñata: The go-to scapegoat for whatever ails the country at any given time. They’re despised, harassed, vilified; their lives torn apart. This calls for a change in the narrative: It’s time for US immigrants to harness our power, claim our stakes and take our immigrant stories on our own hands!

That’s why I simply LOVE the new Immigrant Heritage Month campaign from the folks at FWD.us and Welcome.us. With the goal of bringing together a dynamic coalition of individuals and organizations to encourage every American to tell their immigration story, the campaign examines the complexities of being an immigrant by highlighting and celebrating the diverse experiences, colors and flavors that make up the very fabric of the United States. 

This Friday, I have invited some of the folks behind this exciting initiative to discuss why this is the time to celebrate our Immigrant Heritage, including:

• Daniel Alejandro Leon-Davis, Digital Director for the Immigrant Heritage Month campaign

• Alida M. Garcia, Esq., Director of Coalitions & Policy at FWD.us

• Roberto Frugone, Northeast Director of Civic Engagement at the NALEO Educational Fund

• Felice Gorordo, CEO of ClearPath Immigration

The celebration starts on Friday June 5th at 11:30 am ET - Don't miss it!

UPDATE: Please note new date
On Wednesday May 20, 2015, I have the distinct honor of interviewing the son of Latino immigrants, a veteran, and a community leader, U.S. Representative Rubén Gallego from Arizona's 7th congressional district. 

In his relatively new role as a congressman, Rep. Gallego is quickly managing to make a name for himself by tackling very important yet polarizing issues like income inequality, the cost of higher education, immigration reform and campaign finance reform, veterans issues. 

We will discuss his humble background, his stint at Harvard University, his service in Iraq, his political trajectory, and what he would like his legacy to be. Don't miss his amazingly inspiring story, send him your questions, and tune in!

By all accounts, Sunday morning shows are the spaces where the political conversations of the day are debated. These shows are watched by pundits, policymakers, and decision-makers, particularly during the presidential elections. 

Which makes it even more heartbreaking, for lack of a better word, to read the results of a new Media Matters report on the incidence of Latino-guest appearances on English-language Sunday shows. The report found that only 4 percent of total guests - or 46 out of 1,172 total guests - on English-language Sunday shows were Hispanic. That's not the worst part: In fact, these figures are down by 42% compared to the same length of time last year. When Latinos were invited, the study also found, the overwhelming topic was immigration versus other issues that have repeatedly been shown to also be important to Latinos.

This issue, of course, is nothing new. The concerns of Latinos, as those of many other communities of color, have been ignored by the mainstream media for a long time. The price of such exclusion is too high, particularly as we enter the new presidential campaign season. This Thursday, we will hear from a group of experts in media issues who will share their thoughts on the report, including:

- Jessica Torres, Researcher at +Media Matters for America and co-author of the study
- Felix Sánchez, Chairman and Co-founder of the +National Hispanic Foundation for the Arts and staunch defender of Latinos in the media
- César Vargas, writer, producer, activist, and Founder of +upliftt (United People for Latinos in Film TV and Theater)

Join us at 7pm ET, right here!

June is Men’s Health Month, a nationwide celebration with the goal to raise awareness of preventable health problems in men and boys. According to statistics, men and boys in underserved communities, including Latinos, African American and LGBTQ males, are among the most overlooked populations in this regard. They also receive poorer quality care, face the biggest barriers to care and experience the poorest health outcomes compared with the general population. As such, their needs and issues must be recognized so that they can be addressed properly.

On June 25th, 2015, I will be hosting a discussion about the importance of focusing on men of color as a specific population. My expert guest will discuss what can and is being done about this issue, how we can encourage open discussion about health issues among men, and what health resources are available to help men and boys be and stay healthy.

EXPERT GUESTS:
• Jose Plaza, Enroll America
• Fernando Mercado-Violand, Community Educator, Legal Aid Justice Center
• Representative from Men’s Health Network (MHN)

Please join us and invite the men in your life to participate!

Great Discussion!! Latino men are behind woman in all 15 major death categories except Alzheimer's and that only because they live less years

Younger Bilingual Male Milleneals more likely to take advantage of ACA
preventative care but aged Hispanic males over 55 still very reluctant to seek care due to cost,lack of ins., and communication with Docs

Leverage Latino woman and children getting Dad to seek care!

Occupational injuries to Latino male are a disproportionate leading cause of injury and death,,,need better info,training,and safety standards in Spanish with OSHA taking lead role!
