Wednesday, November 18, 2020 – With decades of journalistic and leadership experience between them, Maria Hinojosa and Jorge Ramos have championed progress and hope in U.S. Latinx communities while exposing how prejudice and failed policies have prevented the U.S. from reaching its potential as a nation of immigrants.
