Our friends at Cuéntame have named CultureStrike’s artivist extraordinaire Julio Salgado as Latino Voz of the Year. A star is born!
In a media arena where issues of immigrants are misrepresented, underreported or overshadowed, Julio consistently stepped up to the plate and shared stories that reflect the strength of the immigrant community. During 2012 we saw Julio’s work related to every issue from deportations to domestic worker rights to cultural appropriation. We’d like to thank Julio for his diligent and critical intervention in new media and arts.
To learn more about Julio’s artivism, see his work with Dreamers Adrift and as one of the many faces of the youth movement for immigration justice.
