As some folks watch CNNs Latino In America and keep those of us without cable (or desire) to watch updated on twitter or facebook, I know that Angie Zapata and Gwen Araujo will not be included.
Just because CNN forgets our women doesn't mean we should to. Here is a list of the HANDFUL of Latino organizations/spaces that actually covered Angie y Gwen's murder and the trial that convicted the individuals who killed them (several mainstream and national media outlets like these and these, did not cover their murders or trial at all). If you know of other LATINO spaces that covered their murders and trial please leave a link in the comments!
