The online event is set to raise awareness on how Latinos count, contribute and come together for civic actions during a global pandemic, while completing the Census 2020.

Produced by UNO Productions and the Coalition for Humane Immigrant Rights (CHIRLA), the largest immigrant rights organization in California, the two-hour live stream event hosted by Nour Milla and Rafael Sigler will shed light on Latino civic power and their participation in the census.

Confirmed artists include Lupillo RiveraOzomatliNinel CondeDiego VerdaguerAna VictoriaAngélica MaríaAngélica ValeArthur Hanlon, and Horóscopos de Durango, to name a few. 

In addition screen and radio stars like del Castillo, Edward James OlmosEl Piolin, and many more will participate.

Angélica Salas, CHIRLA’s executive director, and Diana Colín, its political director, are expected to take part in the conversation on how to ensure civic power in the COVID-19 era.

“The COVID-19 crisis has demonstrated two major realities: how much immigrants and Latinos contribute to our society, especially in challenging times, and how important participating in Census 2020 is so we can challenge all the inequality that still exists,” Salas said in a statement. “The beauty that these artists make as they come together for the Cuídate y Cuéntate virtual concert is a sign of hope that as we all complete Census 2020, the nation flourishes.”

Cuídate y Cuéntate will take place at 7:00 p.m. EST on Saturday, May 23 via a nationwide broadcast on LATV Network with a simulcast on YouTubeFacebook, and IGTV. The show will also air on Meruelo Media‘s KWHY 22.

Conde to Launch Anti-Bullying Campaign…

Despite being one of Mexico’s most beautiful superestrellas, Ninel Conde has still managed to experience cyber-bullying.

But the Mexican actress/singer/model is no “tonta,” as she’s been called… And, Conde has had enough of being ill-treated on the internet.

The former Rebelde star is partnering with producer Billy Rovzar to create a new viral campaign aimed at raising awareness about the bullying epidemic.

“People may laugh at a joke, but there are 10,000 jokes daily…and that affects you. For people to believe something that isn’t true can cause serious psychological damage,” Rovzar told the media about Conde’s experience with cyber-bullying on social media outlets like Twitter. “Ninel is a very strong person and at the end of the day, she’ll overcome it. But there are those who can’t.”

Along with launching the viral campaign, the Latin Grammy-nominated star and Rovzar are hoping to create an online network where victims throughout the world can share stories and speak their minds and give victims a voice.
