NGL Collective (New Generation Latinos), a media company founded by actor John Leguizamo and David Chitel, has launched #UnidosTogether, a new initiative that will utilize various cross-platform brands and celebrities in order to unite, empower and entertain diverse communities with content while they shelter-in-place during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Through the #UnidosTogether site, audiences will have access to curated cultural entertainment for the Latinx community and beyond. This includes weekly live-streaming celebrity interviews recipes from Latinx chefs, live artist/DJ listening parties, content from fashion and wellness influencers, as well as financial experts to provide a range of live education and entertainment programming while the world is social distancing. It will also include the newly launched podcast Hispanicize Hangout.

Those set to participate in #UnidosTogether include Leguizamo, Danay Garcia (Prison Break, Fear the Walking Dead), Daniella Alonso (Dynasty), Rafael De La Fuente (Dynasty, Empire), Julissa Bermudez (Empire Girls: Julissa and Adrienne), Eddie Garza (TV Chef and Senior Manager of Food For the Humane Society) and more.

“At NGL Collective we believe it’s our responsibility to do a little something extra to give back to the community that gives us so much, and help spread a little joy, comfort and dare I say, fun during these uncertain times,” said Chitel. “Our sincere hope is that #UnidosTogether in some way brings a sense of inspiration about the collective power of the Latinx community and what we can achieve together, no matter what obstacles the world presents.
