Alejandro Sanz Launched A Project To Help Support Dreamers And These Latino Celebrities Came Out To Help

Alejandro Sanz has landed in the U.S. to kick of his La Gira tour and with that he is creating a new movement in support of Dreamers – undocumented immigrants who were brought to the U.S. at a young age and have lived their entire lives stateside. Many A-listers are getting behind La Tortura singer’s Dreamers initiative which can easily be supported by means of a t-shirt. Ricky Martin, Camila Cabello and J Balvin are a few of the Latino celebs who have shared selfies wearing the charitable and comfy-looking tops.

The all-black shirts come in an array of styles including the classic t-shirt style, long sleeves, sleeveless and racerback tank tops and are available to purchase for the budget-friendly price of $26.99. Each of the shirts features #Dreamers written across the front with the letter A written upside down and encircled.

Funds from the shirts will help the Ascend Educational Fund which provides funds for their education, the Dream Big Nevada DACA renewal fund and the Immigrants Rising’s that provides subsidies to undocumented entrepreneurs who work to create positive social change.

Luis Fonsi

The Puerto Rican singer shared a photo wearing the classic style tee. Next to it he wrote, “Every great dream begins with a DREAMER. Don’t let anyone threaten your dreams or make you feel like you don’t belong.”

Ricky Martin

Ricky Martin supported the Spanish singer by posting a selfie where he looks completely chill and relaxed. He wrote, “I’m joining my friend Alejandro on this great initiative to support the Dreamers in the US. Because #WeAllDream. We all belong. We are all one. And EVERYONE matters.”

Camila Cabello

The Señorita singer didn’t fall behind as she also supported Dreamers. On her stories Camila shared a selfie and wrote, “I’m joining my friend @alejandrosanz on the initiative to support the #Dreamers in the US!!!” She continued, “Because they are kids just like us just trying to do the best they can in this world.”

Ricardo Montaner

The Venezuelan-Argentine singer did his part and supported the cause with a snap that he captioned with, “Alejandro asked me to call your attention, in his name and those of #dreamers… I also join this beautiful campaign.”

J Balvin

Colombiano J Balvin didn’t hesitate in purchasing a t-shirt and a coffee to go. The Con Altura singer shared a stylish pic wearing an all-black ensemble and standing next to a food truck. “A good coffee and a good cause CharityStars.com/Alejandro #WeallDream.”

India Martinez

The Spanish singer took part in the movement with a pic showcasing her support (and her flawless skin!).

Paty Cantu

The Mexican singer shared a radiant, fresh-faced selfie simulating a polaroid. “I think, then exist. I dream, then live. All dreams are important. And we can do more than by supporting with words. We can support with actions,” she wrote.

Ana Lorena

The Mexican-American actress proudly supports Alejandro with a stunning photo she captioned with, “I like people that don’t just stand still in moments of unease or discomfort. I like the kind of people who actually do something for change. That’s why I’ve joined @alejandrosanz, the #DreamerTeam and the Dreamers in standing together to fight for this cause.” 

Alejandro Sanz

Of course, Alejandro himself also took to social media to share how he wears the charitable shirt by posting his own smiling pic. “I wear the t-shirt of dreams fulfilled, and you? #DREAMERS #DreamerTeam #WeAllDream”

‘National Treasure’ Is Being Rebooted on Disney+ With a Latina Lead, And She’s a DREAMer!

Look, the 2004 movie “National Treasure” may be corny, but it’s also a classic. We’ll admit that we’ve revisited the movie a few times over the years, and hey, it holds up!

After all, who doesn’t want to see Nicolas Cage steal the Declaration of Independence in order to find a mountain of hidden treasure? So, if you’re a fan of the original movie, we have good news for you.

Disney+ just announced that they’re rebooting “National Treasure” as a series. And, this time, the main character will be Latina!

You heard it here first, folks. According to Deadline, the series’ protagonist will be a twenty-year-old Latina named Jess Morales. Throughout the course of the series, Morales will “uncover her mysterious family history and recover lost treasure”.

And to make things even more exciting, Deadline also reported that Jess Morales will be a DREAMer! In addition, Morales will have a “diverse group of friends” who will help her in her adventure. Sounds a lot different than the completely-white 2004 cast.

And unlike the original, apolitical movies, the “National Treasure” reboot will explore issues of “identity, community, historical authorship and patriotism”.

Sounds juicy! While the original Nicolas Cage movies were fun, they definitely never looked at American history through a critical lens. The 2004 movie was much more about finding hidden treasure than exploring what it means to be a person of color in 21st century America.

The fact that the lead of the “National Treasure” reboot is Latina signals to the audience that there are different ways to be American. Being a white male (like Nicolas Cage) doesn’t make you “more American” than being a person of color does.

Of course, Twitter users couldn’t help but express their opinions about the “National Treasure” reboot.

This person made an on-point observation about how the premise of the “National Treasure” reboot sounds suspiciously familiar…

Jess Morales won’t be the first Latina to use a map to find hidden treasure!

And of course, there were the haters that were mad that the hero of “National Treasure” will no longer be an old white dude.

This man doesn’t sound bitter at all…

And naturally, there was plenty of Latino talent ready to throw their hat in the ring.

We can’t wait to see who Disney+ casts to play Jess Morales! We need as many Latinos represented on screen as we can get.
