This program honors Pachamama: Mother Earth
this beautiful planet we must defend against polluters & defilers
who are, in part, our very dear selves
as we drive cars, board plans, and pay taxes for wars

Today is the day to think about how
we can lighten our ecological footsteps
in our home and in our work
and the bigger question:
how to turn our society around globally

Stay tuned as we fill your ears
with musica y poesia
and latino current affairs
