We started Revolucion in 2022 as only a digital event, it was a huge success. We featured amazing talents such as Edward James Olmos, TIKTOK influencers such as Basi Cerdan Jr & Jay Torres, and professionals from all aspects of our community. Our social media reach was 3x smaller than what it is today. Even with that challenge we produced amazing numbers and look to elevate our status with the in person event.
Thank you so much for taking the time to read and support this event. Familia we will see you at Revolucion.
Rafael Fernandez Jr. is a proud 1st Gen Puerto Rican/Dominican who has inspired many through his love of culture, humor, and compassion for his community while being a voice for complicated topics regarding the Latino community. He has been able to encourage and connect with individuals from different parts of the United States and Latin America to promote an ideal that is at the core of Todo Wafi.
“I created TodoWafi and Revolución, because I was tired of society painting our cultura with the same brush during Hispanic Heritage Month. Nothing about us is generic; our culture, food, music, literature, and even languages are extremely diverse. When you look at our Revolución lineup and content it is very intentional. Our goal is to ensure that you see yourself and your life experiences reflected in the programming, and that you feel a sense of pride to be Latino/Latina/Latine. Representation Matters!”
