Once you finished your watchlist (and sung your heart out to Juan Gabriel), browse through a catalog of Latinx podcasts. You’ll find a variety of topics centered around race, identity, culture and everything in-between. Check out PureWow’s Por La Cultura, plus Latinos Who Lunch, Latinx Therapy, Anything For Selena, Latina to Latina and Super Mamás.

10. VISIT AN EXHIBIT OR MUSEUM DEDICATED TO LATINX CULTURE

Immerse yourself in Latinx art and culture at your local museum. If you’re lucky enough to live near El Museo del Barrio, Museum of Latin America Art, DePaul Art Museum, Mexi-Arte Museum, La Plaza de Cultura y Artes, Sea Mar Museum and National Hispanic Cultural Center or another museum geared towards highlighting Latinx voices and educating others on their history, now is your chance to check it out. There are also virtual exhibits and collections to view without leaving your couch.

11. READ BOOKS WRITTEN BY LATINX AUTHORS

Reading is always fundamental—whether you’re looking for a history lesson or want to dive into a fantasy world. Read books from celebrated authors like Gabriel García Márquez and Sandra Cisneros, or learn about a new author in the literary world, like Elizabeth Acevedo and Erika L. Sánchez. Browse your local Latinx-owned bookstore (or support them directly online).

12. DONATE TO ORGANIZATIONS AND CHARITIES

Spend the day helping Latinx communities. Whether it’s donating, protesting or raising awareness, familiarize yourself with organizations and charities focusing on Latinx rights. Learn more about non-profits like Hispanic Heritage Foundation, United We Dream, Unidos US and RAICES which are fighting racism, discrimination and xenophobia. Use your voice to amplify Latinx creators, activists and programs striving to keep Latinx issues and projects at the forefront. We recommend checking out Ain’t I Latina?, We All Grow Latina and The Latinx House to get you started.
