We Belong! Mental Health Access in the Latinx Community

On this episode of Tamarindo, we talk about #therapy and how it can help when we experience #trauma, a timely conversation with recent events that have targeted the #LatinxCommunity. On August 3rd, the people of El Paso experienced one of the most harrowing attacks in recent history at the hands of a White supremacist that specifically targeted immigrants and Latinos. We pause to reflect on that tragedy and other recent policy changes that are adversely affecting our community. As we referenced, this article outlines (https://medium.com/@WeAreUnidosUS/the-shadow-war-to-reshape-the-face-of-america-7c540750e495) how the Trump Administration is deliberately attempting to change the face of America so it looks less....well...brown. At a time when folks in the White House want to tell our community that we don't belong, we know how important it can be to access mental health resources. As part of our commitment to our community's well being, we talk to the creator of the #LatinxTherapy p...

Reproductive Rights for All!

On this episode of Tamarindo, we talk about what is at stake when it comes to #reproductiverights if we don’t take action to stop the intentional work taking place to dismantle #RoevWade. We feature Danielle Perez (https://www.instagram.com/divadelux/) , stand-up comedian, writer, and actress who is leveraging her platform to protect #AbortionAccess. She tells us about the YellowHammer Fund: yellowhammerfund.org which provides funding for anyone seeking care at one of Alabama’s three independent abortion clinics. Brenda also references many resources from the National Organizations for Women or now.org so check them out for ways you can protect reproductive rights for all. And since all this talk about Republicans rolling back the clock on women’s rights can produce anxiety, for our #calmamoment, Ana Sheila shows us how to get started with #journaling, a powerful tool that can improve overall well being and combat anxiety and stress. Lastly, we announce that Tamarindo is taking a...

Why #Latinx Representation is More Important Than Ever!

We asked Dr. Ana-Christina Ramon, co-author of the UCLA Hollywood Diversity Report, Director of Research & Civic Engagement, UCLA Social Sciences, what letter grade she would give Hollywood on their representation of Latinx characters and stories and surprise surprise, Hollywood flunked! She says it she would give Hollywood a D+. “Out of the top 8 roles in films and TV, 5 to 7 percent are portrayed by Latinx actors,” Dr. Ramon says. She goes on to say that “When 18 percent of the population is Latinx, this significant underrepresentation is inexcusable!” We agree with Dr. Ana-Christina Ramon, and so on this episode of Tamarindo, Ana Sheila and Brenda talk about why #Latinx representation is important and share examples of Latinx stories to celebrate and some that make us cringe. We are especially excited to drop this episode today when trailblazing STARZ Original Series VIDA is back for its second season! #VIDA is a show for the Latinx community and we know you’ll love it. We even heard a little bit about her experience as a writer on the show from Jennifer Castillo. We hope you enjoy this episode of Tamarindo and share it with a friend!

Why #Latinx Representation is More Important Than Ever!

Mamis (mamás, moms, amas) know best!

On this episode of Tamarindo, we start off with lessons from the biggest #influencers in our lives, our moms. Then we introduce you to our good friend, Rebecca Pleitez, Deputy Director of Grassroots advocacy for the California Primary Care Association, and mommy-in-chief of two, with one on the way. Although Rebecca has only been a mom for a few years, her experience is unique in that she’s at times been an entrepreneur, military mom, traveling mom, stay at home mom you name it. As you’ll hear, Rebecca is one of the most authentic people we know so we invited her to keep it real with you'all about #momlife. A lifelong advocate, Rebecca has been involved in #healthpolicy work and local government, most recently supporting California Assemblywoman Carrillo’s entry into office. We talk to Rebecca about ways we can all be advocates for moms and mujeres everywhere on this special #DiadelasMadres episode! Don’t forget to share this episode with a friend!

Pasitos to a Healthier You con Tamarindo!

On this episode of Tamarindo, we start by recapping how we did on our latest #reto or personal challenge! We'll tell you how we did facing our biggest #budget adversaries, happy hours and public transportation fails, you’ll find out who made it to the end and some tips to take home to try your own budget challenge. We also kick off our first of many conversations around different aspects of #health as they affect our communities. Focusing on physical health for this chat, we share how we took our first “pasitos” or small steps towards a more conscious health awareness of what we eat, how we move, and how our physical health is connected to our emotional, mental, and overall well being. Through ideas on how to create positive habits, the power of accountability, and some personal healthy eating #tips, we set the stage for a fun conversation where we hope you’ll learn something too! We’re including some of the stats and resources we shared on the episode below. As usual, we share our matraca and basura, including a nod to #DoloresHuerta who was honored with her own day in California on April 10th. We won’t reveal our basura, but we will say we wish “we could turn back time” on her comments! Don't forget to rate and review #TamarindoPodcast and get in touch with us at contact@tamarindopodcast.com with feedback and topics you want to hear more about!

Pasitos to a Healthier You con Tamarindo!

Chicano, Latina, Latinx...What's in a Name?

On this episode of Tamarindo, our very own wellbeing-enthusiast Ana Sheila kicks off our new segment on personal challenges or #retos that push us to take note of our habits, identify what's harming vs. helping, and helps us live more intentionally. Next, we delve into a discussion on #identity as we reflect on "I Am Not Your Perfect Mexican Daughter" the young adult novel by Erika L. Sanchez. Our chat is light on spoilers, so even if you haven't read this story of a #FirstGen Mexican teen named Julia who is grappling with the recent death of her older sister Olga, you'll connect with the themes we discuss. We reflect on labels like #Chicano, #Latina, #Latinx and other terms that we have connected to at different points in our lives. We know #MEChA has [made the news](https://apnews.com/95617a47dde44c0c964b07672f23e9e1) recently and both of us talk a bit about our days as part of MEChA in high school and college. We can't wait to hear your thought on this as well! Finally, we give a big Tamarindo #matraca to the forces behind a growing national community of badass #Latinas who lift each other up, #LatinasWhoBrunch! Tamarindo is teaming up with #TeatroLuna to co-host Latinas Who Brunch LA on Saturday April 6\.
