Podcast: De AquĆ­ a Noviembre
From Now to November

Beginning in September 2018, IFCLA is honored to partner with Diario Digital St. Louis to offer a Spanish-language podcast that seeks to explore immigration-related topics pertinent to our community, region, and moment in time leading up to the mid-term elections this November. In this weekly series, we seek to open the dialogue on politics, society and community. We seek to better understand the composition of our Latinx community in St. Louis and the challenges we face in growing and defining ourselves as a community.
