We are excited to introduce a new section of the ROCLA Newsletter entitled "Perspectives." As we were putting together this edition of the newsletter, we received articles by authors that reflected on their subjects from specifically Latinx perspectives. We found these voices particularly interesting and decided to feature them. We’re asking that our readers and friends contribute articles, letters, editorials or commentary from a Latinx perspective that we will feature in this section.
COVID-19 has affected all aspects of our daily lives, our activities and what motivates us as human beings. But ROCLA’s all-volunteer, committed, Steering Committee members have worked hard to move forward. We host speakers and monthly programs to provide you with accurate, on the ground, current information about Latin America. With the assistance of Zoom, we have “traveled” to Brazil, Cuba, El Salvador, Nicaragua, Venezuela, and the Mexican border. Our new convener, Tom Ward, reaches out to potential speakers and facilitates a very lively discussion following each monthly program.
