Launched in 2021, Profiles is a YouTube documentary series that seeks to explore, document, and share the lives of Ecuadorians and Ecuadorian-Americans in the five boroughs of New York City. Through weekly short interviews, we aim to show the diversity of our community members, strengthen our cultural and identity ties, and expose our enormous contributions to the United States.

This program also looks to build generational bridges of recognition and archives for future generations who’ll want to explore what it means to be Ecuadorian or Ecuadorian-American in New York City.

All episodes are subtitled so that they are both accessible by English- and Spanish-speaking audiences.

¡Our course is currently online!

Every Thursday 
7:00 pm (NY-EST)
