Latinx On The Rise is a podcast focusing on conversations with high achieving Latinx movers and shakers. Under the current political climate, the Latinx community continue to be relegated by being told what and who they are with little space to share perspective of our own stories. From queer identity to Afro-Latinidad we are constantly reminded there is little room for our stories to reach the masses. Latinx On The Rise has changed that landscape with representation of all kinds of Latinx- Americans across the country who are excited to share their achievements and hope to inspire listeners.

    Medical Conditions & Covid in US Detention Centers | September 2020 [Interview Clip] PT. 1

    Medical Conditions & Covid in US Detention Centers | September 2020 [Interview Clip] PT. 1

    Detention Centers in the US have become money making machines but at what cost. If we’re honest with ourselves, people’s lives are the cost. In this episode I speak to Maru Mora Villalpando a member of La Resistencia in Seattle, WA. La Resistencia along with multiple non-profits across the country have been bringing migrant issues during this pandemic to the forefront. The moment Coronavirus arrived in the US it was only a matter of time before it hit prisons and detention centers. This is something that most of us active in the migrant community feared beyond our own health and well being. Maru and I speak about improper Covid testing, unauthorized procedures done and harmful chemicals used in detention facilities.

    Latinx University and college students are trying to balance virtual learning through a global pandemic. It is hard enough to be, in many cases, a first generation college student let alone the added factor of a pandemic. How have you been affected by the pandemic?
