As the nation prepares to celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month, we'll take a closer look at the Washington's region's Latino community. We'll explore the role Latinos play in the local arts scene, and we'll find out how Virginia's gubernatorial candidates are engaging with Latino voters in the weeks before election day. Plus, we'll head to Mexico for the latest in our "Eating in the Embassy" series. And we'll meet a transgender Latina who's reaching out to some of the city's most marginalized residents.
