Latin music stars and personalities such as Lupillo Rivera and Kate del Castillo are uniting for the upcoming Cuídate y Cuéntate (Take Care and Be Counted) virtual concert set to raise awareness about how Latinos count, contribute and come together for civic actions during a global pandemic, and completing 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 hosted by Nour Milla and Rafael Sigler will shed light on Latino civic power and their participation in the census.
Artists confirmed for the event include Lupillo Rivera, Ozomatli, Ninel Conde, Diego Verdaguer, Ana Victoria, Angélica María, Angélica Vale, Arthur Hanlon, and Horóscopos de Durango, to name a few. In addition screen and radio stars such as Edward James Olmos, Kate del Castillo, El Piolin, and many more will be participating.
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 YouTube, Facebook, and IGTV. The show will also air on Meruelo Media’s KWHY 22.
