LOS ANGELES– Eva Longoria and Gina Rodriguez will be among those honored at next month’s ALMA awards.
Wilmer Valderrama is host of the celebration of Latino achievements in American entertainment and media.
Activists Samantha Fuentes and Jamie Margolin also will be honored. Fuentes survived the Parkland, Florida, school shooting, and Margolin founded the Zero Hour motion to deal with environment change.
Rodriguez, star of TELEVISION’s “Jane the Virgin,” will share the awards spotlight with the show’s cast.
The Nov. 4 ALMA event is airing live at 8 p.m. Eastern on brother or sister TV channels Fuse and FM. Performances by Ally Brooke and Amara La Negra will be featured.
In a statement Friday, host Valderrama stated Latino accomplishments and contributions need to be highlighted more than ever at what he called a “crucial” time.
The ALMAs– American Latino Media Arts Awards– are back after a three-year hiatus in time for the 50th anniversary of UnidosUS, previously known as National Council of La Raza.
UnidosUS is the nation’s largest Hispanic civil rights and advocacy organization. In 1995 it created the ALMAs as a method to promote reasonable, precise and well balanced representations of Latinos in the show business.
Fuse Media made a multi-year agreement to end up being the unique multiplatform media house of the ALMAs.
