Cuídate y Cuéntate, hosted by Nour Milla and Rafael Sigler,
is a two-hour musical extravaganza produced by UNO
Productions and the Coalition for Humane Immigrant Rights (CHIRLA),
the largest immigrant rights organization in California.
The all-access concert will broadcast
nationwide via LATV Network (flagship KVMD, Channel 31.1 in
Los Angeles) with a simulcast on YouTube, Facebook and IGTV.
The show will also air on Meruelo Media's KWHY 22, which
will also assist and provide production services.
The star-studded event featuring pop,
nostalgic, classical, Mexican regional, and urban music will
raise awareness about how Latinos count, contribute and come
together for civic actions such as volunteering, caring for
the sick, providing essential services during a global
pandemic, and completing Census2020. The concert will
feature stories from our community, as well as special
messages of gratitude, appreciation, care and action from
celebrities and notable experts.
We will also feature personalities from film,
radio and television, such as
Edward James Olmos, Kate del Castillo,
Veronica del Castillo, Omar y Argelia, Henry Zakka, El
Piolín, Elisa Beristain, Javier Ceriani, Pepe Garza, Gustavo
Adolfo Infante, Erazno y la Chokolata, Chikilin, Anthony
Valadez, Liliana García Patiño, Andrea Nales, Dra. Ana María
Lalo Alcaraz, Dr. Luis Pacheco, and Patricia Ramos.
They will talk about how we ensure our civic
power in the COVID-19 era. Angélica Salas, CHIRLA's
executive director, and Diana Colín, its political director,
will also take part in the conversation.
"The Covid-19 crisis has demonstrated two
major realities: how much immigrants and Latinos contribute
to our society, especially in challenging times; and how
important participating in Census2020 is so we can challenge
all the inequality that still exists," Salas said. "The
beauty that these artists make as they come together for the
Cuídate y Cuéntate virtual concert is a sign of hope that as
we all complete Census2020,
the nation flourishes."
Join us for a unique evening full of music
from across the Latino firmament as we act civically to
shelter in place and make ourselves count in the census!

Facts About Cuídate y Cuéntate:
As the COVID-19 pandemic disproportionately affects Latinos
and immigrants, CHIRLA strives to inform, protect, and
activate the community. This first-of-its-kind virtual event
will raise awareness about the value and contributions of
our community and the interconnectedness of all of us.
Immigrants and Latinos are our neighbors, loved ones, and
friends. As part of our nation, they count; they are not
invisible. In a show of solidarity, we ask everyone to take
an active role in this year's census and be part of the #ContamosContigo
Census2020 effort. Now more than ever, we must come together
as one strong voice. Join CHIRLA and stand with us as part
of a strong immigrant rights movement.
The Coalition for Humane Immigrant Rights (CHIRLA), is an
immigrant-centered and immigrant-powered organization, the
largest in California, working to achieve a just society
fully inclusive of immigrants. We drive progressive social
change by providing direct immigration legal services at low
cost to the most vulnerable among us; organizing immigrants
to take active part in the social change we all want to see;
and, advocating in the halls of power for laws and
government policies that benefit and include immigrants in
the national conversation about the kind of nation we want
