In light of the current Arizona situation, Latinos in Social Media [LATISM] is taking action.
Our voice is the most powerful tool we humans have, and, as a social media organization, we believe social media offers the perfect vehicles to amplify it.
Today, we are asking our LATISM community to stand up in the name of Humanity and Latino Pride.
Whether you are Latino/a, a Latino sympathizer of any race, color, religion, sexual orientation or national origin OR you simply believe in the rights of all HUMANS, join us in solidarity of Latinos in Arizona as we shout out our Latino Pride:
I AM LATINO2!
Together, we can bring attention to an issue that affects so many of our hermanos and hermanas.
