May brings the celebration of Mother’s Day. In this installment of Conversations over Cafecito, Aida Negrón, Bilingual Communications Specialist at Esperanza United, conducts an interview with Xochitl Oseguera, vice president of Mamás con Poder, to talk about the impact of gun violence on Latino mothers and how this connects to gender-based violence.
She explains how gun violence is a critical issue that particularly affects Hispanic mothers and discusses how it intersects with gender-based violence. Oseguera advocates for specific policies to reduce gun violence in the Latino community and in general. She also explains how listeners can support the work of Mamás con Poder and offers a message of support and encouragement to Latino mothers in relation to gun violence.
