FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Washington, D.C., February 9, 2017 – Today, Think Freely Media launched Think Freely Latino (TFL), an outreach vertical specifically designed to engage U.S. Hispanic and Latino audiences in a meaningful, culturally relevant, and aspirational conversation about how to best empower individuals to thrive, succeed, and make a positive impact in their communities.
TFL will work with community leaders to identify, cultivate, and share useful resources from across the web. The “Nuestros Héroes” Blog will feature inspiring stories about redemption, triumph over adversity, and Latinos’ unique entrepreneurial spirit. Outreach programs will focus on incentivizing an increased following, helping raise awareness about the benefits of living in a freer society. Leading the charge is Sandra Pedroarias, TFL’s project manager and former deputy director and acting director of the Office of International Women’s Issues, Democracy and Global Affairs at the U.S. Department of State and former senior advisor to the U.S. Treasurer at the U.S. Department of the Treasury.
“The U.S. Hispanic and Latino community is filled with role models – successful professionals, entrepreneurs, and influencers who are making positive contributions that stretch far beyond their individual communities. I am proud to introduce the Think Freely Latino (TFL) Advisory Board, made up of inspiring and influential leaders, who will advise this project moving forward. I’m also excited to launch www.thinkfreelylatino.org, a website where we can share stories of our leaders, success stories, and unsung heroes,” said Pedroarias.
Joining Pedroarias is an impressive Advisory Board, comprised of Hispanic leaders from a variety of business and community sectors. A list of the Think Freely Latino Advisory Board members can be found here.
“I am honored to join the Think Freely Latino Advisory Board and contribute to their new Hispanic and Latino outreach project. Throughout my career, I have connected with thousands of Hispanic and Latino small business owners across the country who are finding ways to give back, despite regulatory or economic pressures of recent years,” said Allen Gutierrez, National Executive Director of The Latino Coalition. “I truly look forward to connecting TFL with these passionate individuals, and their amazing stories,” Gutierrez continued.
The launch of Think Freely Latino was kicked off with its first Advisory Board meeting held today in Washington, D.C. as well as the launch of its website, www.thinkfreelylatino.org. You can learn more about TFL, or suggest a story and nominate a hero in your community on the website. For regular updates, follow TFL on Facebook and on Twitter.
