In our aim to help the Latino community, one of our favorite activities is helping to highlight and amplify the great work being done by different organizations on its behalf. To that end, this week, LATISM is proud to host and promote not one but TWO BLOG CARNIVALS this week! Don’t miss this opportunity to make speak up on these issues that so disproportionately affect our community. Let’s use our voices and influence for the good of Latinos everywhere!
