‘Rooted’ Latino festival plants seeds in Aspen

ASPEN, COLO. – A group of Latino artists, communicators, politicians and advocates are congregating in Colorado this week for the Raizado Festival, a gathering that seeks to address issues affecting the community in media, organizing and politics.

Organizers of the Raizado Festival — the name is Spanish for "rooted" — purposely chose Aspen, a place where powerful groups hold summits that direct the future of industry, philanthropy and civil society organizations.
