The Ones to Know: 10 Latinx Creators You Should Be Following

At Day One, we are passionate about Fresh Perspectives and are committed to amplifying diverse voices. When we looked at the influencer landscape and the partnerships these voices garnered, we noticed a gap in representation. That’s why, in 2019, we created The Ones to Know a curated resource of creators, artists, athletes, innovators, change makers, and storytellers from diverse communities who are stopping us in our scrolls. The Ones to Know was created to elevate the voices of creators and storytellers from underrepresented, minority communities.

Now that Latinx Heritage Month is in full swing, we’re excited to continue celebrating the contributions that members of the Latinx community make in our society and culture. Of the countless Latinx creators we’re inspired by, these 10 are some of our favorites:
