Conexiones is a bilingual television magazine program and social initiative that showcases the positive impact individuals and organizations from the Latino community make in the New Orleans Area. Conexiones focuses on empowering Latino individuals through telling the success stories of people that work hard and that are passionate about what they do. Conexiones wants to portray the Latino culture away from the cliché stereotypes presented by the mainstream media.
Conexiones also serves as a communication the link between the Latino community and the community at large. Our main mission is to inspire our Latino residents through highlighting the contributions of Latino individuals in arts, music, sports, technology and anything else that creates a positive impact in our society, and to create awareness of those contributions among the native Louisianans.
Conexiones airs every Thursday at 9:30pm on WLAE-TV and segments are also featured through social media and YouTube. Usernames: ConexionesUsa
