Al Día con Centro Presente
For over 30 years Centro Presente has hosted a weekly, half-hour discussion program called Al Día con Centro Presente. Mediated by our organizers the space is an opportunity to explore issues of critical importance to the Latino immigrant community of Massachusetts in their own language. The program frequently interviews members, allies and visitors to Boston with important messages for the community. It provides a critical outreach and education tool for our campaigns and organizing efforts.
Using AM radio as a medium for this program allowed us to reach out to our community in a format that was accessible and widely used by our members in their homes, workplaces, and cars. With the rise and prevalence of new social media channels within the immigrant community, we have transitioned Al Día con Centro Presente to a virtual format distributed through social media.
