Univision Local Digital has launched “#MiHistoriaCOVID,” a digital documentary series that shines a light on Latino front-line workers during the COVID-19 pandemic, as one in three Hispanics in the United States has caught the virus.
Each episode will feature the story of a Latino essential worker and honor their solidarity and courage. From doctors, pharmacy staff, law enforcement workers and firefighters to delivery persons, street sweepers, telecommunications workers, farmworkers, funeral home staff, public transportation employees and more, “#MiHistoriaCOVID” is a tribute to the resiliency of the Hispanic community and the human spirit during a once-in-a-lifetime public health crisis.
The first episode highlights the story of Michael Chaires, a young Latino living in Texas and separated from his family in Los Angeles. His father is an essential worker that has tested positive for COVID-19.
Now available on Univision.com/mihistoriacovid, with new episodes premiering every Thursday through November 5. Each episode will be available on Univision NOW a week after its premiere.
“#MiHistoriaCOVID” was commissioned by Univision through a grant from the International Center of Journalists and Facebook.
