LAS VEGAS — El sábado 11 de enero la organización Mi Familia Vota invitó al exvicepresidente, ahora candidato a la presidencia, Joe Biden a escuchar y responder a las preguntas planteadas por la comunidad. El evento tomó lugar en Rancho High School en Las Vegas, Nevada, donde se abordaron temas como la reforma migratoria, derechos a los trabajadores y educación.

Mi Familia Vota ha presentado una campaña, "Prioridades 2020" que busca "hold presidential candidates accountable" hacer a los candidatos responsables de sus propuestas invitándoles a escuchar los problemas de la comunidad a través de las preguntas elaboradas por los mismos asistentes.

Prioridades 2020 es una campaña que invita a todos los candidatos, previamente se le entrevisto al candidato Tom Steyer y se espera contar con el apoyo del resto de los candidatos.

Mi Familia Vota es una organización sin fines de lucro que promueve la "justicia social y económica" a través de sus talleres de ciudadanía, el registro de votantes y el programa de liderazgo juvenil.

Durante el evento, CEO y director ejecutivo de Mi Familia Vota, Héctor Sánchez Barba moderó las preguntas entre ellas la siguiente "¿Qué podemos esperar de usted en el tema de deportación si usted se convierte en presidente"

"La gente que regresará a la escuela serán los agentes de I.C.E., se reeducarán... Nadie será deportado bajo mi administración mientras no hayan cometido ningún delito," Biden respondió.

Seguido de los aplausos y entusiasmo por la mayor parte de los asistentes, Sanchez Barba prosiguió con las preguntas. Pese a que no se pudieron abordar el resto de las preguntas que se le tenían preparadas al ex vicepresidente, la organización agradeció al candidato por darse un tiempo en su agenda para escuchar lo que preocupa a la comunidad Latina.

A este evento fueron invitados un grupo de jóvenes estudiantes de Arizona. Ahí, varios pudieron interactuar con el candidato a través de las preguntas que estos pudieron presentar al candidato antes del evento.

De esa forma invita a los jóvenes que aprovechen este tipo de oportunidades de conocer las propuestas de los candidatos.

Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we are becoming.

If there's one thing I'm absolutely terrible at, it's giving myself grace. I'm easily my own worst critic in almost everything that I do. I'm a raging perfectionist, and I have unrealistic expectations for myself at times. I can remember simple errors I made years ago, and I still hold on to them. The biggest thing I'm trying to work on is giving myself grace. I've realized that when I don't give myself grace, I miss out on being human. Even more so, I've realized that in order to give grace to others, I need to learn how to give grace to myself, too. So often, we let perfection dominate our lives without even realizing it. I've decided to change that in my own life, and I hope you'll consider doing that, too. Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we're becoming. As you read through these five affirmations and ways to give yourself grace, I hope you'll take them in. Read them. Write them down. Think about them. Most of all, I hope you'll use them to encourage yourself and realize that you are never alone and you always have the power to change your story.

How Young Feminists Can Understand And Subvert The Internalized Male Gaze

Women's self-commodification, applied through oppression and permission, is an elusive yet sexist characteristic of a laissez-faire society, where women solely exist to be consumed. (P.S. justice for Megan Fox)

Paramount Pictures

Within various theories of social science and visual media, academics present the male gaze as a nebulous idea during their headache-inducing meta-discussions. However, the internalized male gaze is a reality, which is present to most people who identify as women. As we mature, we experience realizations of the perpetual male gaze.
