Rosie Perez, Tessa Thompson and Salma Hayek are among the National Hispanic Media Coalition’s Impact Awards honorees. The 24th annual celebration will be held virtually December 5 at 5:30 p.m. PT hosted by Mario Lopez, with additional appearances from U.S. Rep. Joaquin Castro (D-TX) and the Saldana sisters (Zoe, Cisely, and Mariel Saldana). It will also feature performances by recording artists Chrisol and Eddie Zuko & Vel the Wonder.
“It is such an honor to celebrate Latinx talent that have paved the way for a more inclusive entertainment industry, one that reflects the diversity not only within the Latinx community, but also the diversity of the Latinx experience,” said Brenda Victoria Castillo, President and CEO of the National Hispanic Media Coalition. “The evening’s honorees have exemplified leadership in the fight for representation and inclusivity throughout their careers and continue to open doors for others through their work.”
