Latinx & Hispanic Heritage Month

A curated multimedia guide to celebrate Latinx & Hispanic Heritage Month.


Paredon Records

Paredon Records was founded in 1970 by Barbara Dane and Irwin Silber to shed light on global leftist movements. Paredon set out to amplify the voices of artists and activists that were full of hope and sometimes desperation, voices that expressed the struggles and victories of people standing up for peace and social justice.
