L.I.F.E. (Latinos in Film & Entertainment), co-founded by Angelique Rivera and Rob Alicea, at its heart, is a burgeoning non-profit organization with the mission of creating a unified community of Latin & Hispanic artists + entertainment professionals, above and below the line, to inspire, uplift and empower one another to grow in their respective careers in the entertainment industry. Since our inception in September 2022, we have expanded to over 120 active members and continue to grow our social media presence. Our model is to build connections horizontally, not just vertically, by connecting creatives at all levels and stages of their careers with the goal of these relationships leading to meaningful and long-lasting work partnerships. We do this through planning and executing fun, team-building & networking events, hosting virtual L.I.F.E. Coaching calls with industry leaders and professionals, providing opportunities for support + mentorship and using our one-of-a-kind database where you can easily search for a Latino creator or entertainment professional in the community and connect with them directly. Anyone is allowed to join regardless of their resume or experience (no gatekeeping here) and no matter where they are located in the world (yes, we have active members on other continents!).
