An excerpt:

“We grew up listening to our Moms catching up with our tias Sunday night on the telephone. We don’t do that,’ says Brenda Salinas, social media producer for LatinoUSA. Salinas and her LatinoUSA colleague Kaitlin Archambault are here recording stories as part of a new segment, using #LatinoProblems. Latina Magazine advice columnist Pauline Campos is also helping out. ‘We use social media especially Facebook and Instagram to stay in touch with our extended family. And we’ve discovered we can use social media also for activism and to have our voices heard.”
