PBS presents a whole collection of programs during October.
To begin, on Monday October 3, viewers can be inspired by "Willie Velasquez: Your Vote is Your Voice," a documentary about the charismatic pioneering activist whose rallying cry -- “su voto es su voz” (your vote is your voice) -- started a grassroots movement that transformed the nation’s political landscape and paved the way for the growing power of the Latino vote.
