Leveling the financial area and honoring Hispanic Heritage Month

— Pandocap international broadcast “Unifying the Latino voice while creating economic parity for all" will stream on September 14, 2020 —

SAN FRANCISCO, CA – September 10, 2020 – (LATINX NEWSWIRE) - Pandocap, a leading financial media company, will provide the platform for a one-hour international broadcast honoring the U.S. Hispanic community on Sept. 14, 2020, at 12:30 p.m. EDT.

The program format will be both sophisticated and informal in tone, giving leaders in our community the opportunity to celebrate our Hispanic heritage. Current participants include Claudia Romo Edelman (We Are All Human), California Lutheran University, Henry R. Munoz III (Momento Latino), Ana Valdez (Latino Donor Collaborative), and many more.

The broadcast will give those groups who are traditionally excluded from this landscape – specifically Latinx communities, women, and other minority groups – inspiration and ideas regarding financial literacy and education.

"We want to champion the Latino voice to be heard and seen worldwide as a powerful economic force," said Laura Lucas, founder and CEO of Pandocap. "We will culminate with a call to action at the end to Vota con Amor which is a nonpartisan effort to have a historic voter turnout in the Latino community."

Full program information and guests can be found at Pandocap.
