When we're looking to see what's going on in the world, the common sense thing to do is head over to our favorite news or culture site. But these days, we're looking for the social commentary, too, and we want it from reliable sources. Enter social media.
Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, Instagram and other platforms provide a space for woke people everywhere to come together in community with each other. We observe the thoughts of others and let them challenge and inform our own beliefs. Here are some notable Latinx folks on social media that you're definitely going to want to take note of.

Latina Rebels founder Prisca Dorcas Mojica Rodríguez regularly serves up the chonga realness and feminism that is missing from your timeline.
