NBC News & Positive Impact Awards

This week, NBC News featured 8 Latino Bloggers for Social Good.  I was named along with these fabulous people below and encourage everyone to check their stories and blogs.

You can read the full article here.

Also, Hispanicize is accepting nominations for the Positive Impact Award.  Three of us in this list were awardees over the past few years.  The award is for Latinos making a difference in their communities.  Not super stars or rocks stars, common folks like you and I who are making a difference.  If you know anyone, NOMINATE them.  It is quite an honor to be selected and get an award at Hispanicize 2016.
