Today from Texas, the Mexican American Legal Defense and Educational Fund (MALDEF) livestreamed its annual Latino State of the State in Texas discussion.
In case you missed it, here is the full session.
Meanwhile, some of us have asked us why we were critical of MALDEF for supporting a Latina maids show we think does nothing to move Latinos forward. Our founder shared his thoughts here, and we have let MALDEF know several times our feelings, mostly online, where everyone can see everything.
However, that has never meant that we do not support the incredible work MALDEF has accomplished for so many years, and quite honestly, we are very aware that our visions are very similar. We will always support MALDEF, and for those rare time when we have a difference of opinion, we will share it with them. That is called open dialogue, and we think that is a good thing.
Gracias, Maldef, por todo.
