Telemundo launched on August 8 “#LatinoStrong, Unidos Contra el Odio,” an on-air and digital initiative dedicated to supporting the Hispanic community in the U.S. following mass shootings in El Paso, TX, and Dayton, OH, on August 3. It includes “Profiles of Courage,” which shares stories and contributions of Hispanics across the country. Telemundo has partnered with the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) and Communities Against Hate (CAH), The Leadership Conference Education Fund and the Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights Under Law. CAH is a national initiative that encourages people to share stories of hate and provides access to legal and social services.
“As the Spanish-language network in the U.S. representing 60 million Latinos, it is our responsibility and commitment to U.S. Hispanics to provide support during these difficult times … We stand with all communities in promoting unity and eradicating acts of violence,” said Senior Vice President of Corporate and External Affairs Christina Kolbjornsen.
