A different kind of Mexican Independence Day celebration this year for sure! With Covid keeping us all indoors, this year’s Diez -y-Seis de Septiembere celebrations have had to go on line. We post this reminder summary of the events surrounding Mexico’s struggle for independence from Spain back in 1810.
Also this week, Ricardo Romo takes a long at the younger generation of Latinix youth and how they are likely to vote in the coming election. Check out his “Latino Youth Fired up to Vote!”
From Puerto Rico, blogger José Muratti-Toro analyzes the passing of Supreme Court Associate Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg and what it may portend if Trump immediately appoints a new Justice before the November 3rd election. If the Supreme Court winds up with a 9 to 3 conservative majority, what will it mean for the possible reversal of Roe vs. Wade? Check out José’s opinion piece in Spanish.
Lastly, from Texas, musician composer David Garza renders his original song, “I-10 Charm.”
