Letter from the Editor
As we are still amid the pandemic, inevitable changes are taking place, which range from social causes to the future of the workforce. We recognize these constantly evolving times, which is why this issue of HISPANIC Network Magazine delves into the current occurrences in the Latino community and the impact COVID-19 has had on businesses.
With the Black Lives Matter movement underway, Latinos are standing in solidarity with the Black community, as they have faced their own racial injustice.
Eric Rodriguez of UnidosUS states, “The movement has given many Latinos, who have also been harmed, aggrieved or offended by police practices, a voice and a means of expressing their frustration in a way that advances social change.”

Adam Rodriguez, our cover story, is no stranger to advocating for social change. When it comes to serving Latinos, the actor and family man gives 100 percent.
His new series, Penny Dreadful: City of Angels, tackles this very thing: “This show takes place in 1938, and we’re dealing with all the same challenges without having made very much progress in almost 100 years,” he says. Read more about the Magic Mike star’s views, current projects, and how he and his family are seeing the pandemic in a positive light on page 42.
