NHMC Recognizes Social Justice Game Changers
Senator Bernie Sanders, Lin-Manuel and Luis Miranda, Selena: The Series, among honorees
Special guests Congressman Joaquin Castro and FCC Commissioner Jessica Rosenworcel
Los Angeles, CA– The National Hispanic Media Coalition (NHMC) wrapped its virtual Impact Award Series: Honoring Game Changers today. NHMC President & CEO Brenda Victoria Castillo included in the program conversations with Congressional Hispanic Caucus Chairman Congressman Joaquin Castro regarding media diversity ownership, and Latinx representation across film, television, publishing and in the newsroom. Closing the digital divide was the topic of discussion with Federal Communications Commissioner Jessica Rosenworcel.
“This has been a challenging year for all of us. NHMC’s Impact Awards are about recognizing Game Changers who have moved the needle in their areas of expertise, and having some authentic conversation about issues impacting Latinx, Black, Indigenous, Asian, and other marginalized communities,” said Castillo. “In 2021 NHMC will be focused on eliminating online hate, closing the digital divide, and improving Latinx representation from the White House to Hollywood.”
All three installments of the National Hispanic Media Coalition’s Impact Awards Series: Honoring Game Changers are now streaming on www.nhmc.org/impact.
