According to a study by the Hispanic Marketing Council (HMC), 54 percent of Dads said, “I’m the boss in the family,” but only 5 percent of Moms agreed. HMC also asked teens ages 13-17: 28 percent of them said Dad was the boss, 34 percent said Mom, and 28 percent said Dad and Mom were co-bosses as a unified team.

It’s Pride Month! Every year, in June, LGBTQIA+ communities worldwide celebrate the freedom to be authentically and unapologetically who they are. City streets erupt in festive expressions of Pride as enthusiastic, and often costumed patrons attend parades, concerts, and festivals decorated with brightly colored rainbow flags, streamers, and confetti.

But while 2.7 million Latinx children took part in a structured summer experience in 2019, nearly 4.4 million more would have been enrolled if a program were available to them, their parents said.

Hispanics are the driving force behind shifts in the American demographic landscape and in popular culture.

People have challenged each other’s views for much of human history. But the internet – particularly social media – has changed how, when and where these kinds of interactions occur.
