The day my home city of New York had more deaths than on 9/11, I began asking essential workers to record their experiences before and after they began working their shifts as mail carriers, nurses, subway drivers, sanitation workers, redeployed doctors and doormen. What results is a story of humanity, humility, and everyday heroes hidden within these New Yorkers.

Partnering with America Ferrera and Ryan Piers Williams, the Voto Latino Innovators Challenge Series highlights the winners of the competition hosted by the MacArthur Foundation held in Spring 2015. These tech innovators are making big contributions to the Latino community by creating apps and networking groups that provide support and assistance to a growing population.
The three innovators featured have overcome universal struggles of loss of family members, lack of educational support, but also issues specific to latinos like immigration and language barriers.
The series debuted at the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia on July 26, 2016.
