UnidosUS President and CEO Janet Murguía Featured in Documentary GUMBO COALITION Now Streaming on Max

Washington, DC— UnidosUS—the nation’s largest Latino civil rights and advocacy organization— is featured in the documentary, GUMBO COALITION, following two visionary civil rights leaders, UnidosUS President and CEO Janet Murguía and National Urban League President and CEO Marc Morial, as they work to empower Black and Latino communities through four turbulent years in America. The film’s trailer is available to view at this link and viewers will now be able to watch the documentary on Max.  

The duo’s work is rooted in their deep commitment to social equity and justice and is on full display in the documentary. Directed by two-time Academy Award®-winning filmmaker Barbara Kopple, “Gumbo Coalition” takes us on an intimate—and sometimes humorous—journey into their lives, homes and the family histories that motivate their united mission to create a more just and equitable country. At a dramatic crossroads in American history, these leaders face some of their biggest challenges: the global pandemic, the murder of George Floyd and the 2020 presidential election and its chaotic aftermath.
