Ya Tu Sabes is a monologue slam showcasing emerging diverse Latinx Writers and Actors.

The Latinx voice is underwhelming and misplaced in the entertainment industry.
Recent studies conducted by local universities have demonstrated that the Latinx voice and representation is underwhelming and misplaced in the entertainment industry. Nosotros recognizes that there is a severe disconnect and a largely negative perception of Latinx in Hollywood. Thus, we have created this program to give up-and-coming and established Latinx writers and actors a platform to be recognized for their talents by networks and studios. Many of our Nosotros members and participants have been directly called in for network and studio table readings, guest star and series regular roles, and producer sessions from being seen in our programs.
Nosotros is the oldest Latino arts advocacy organization in the United States founded by Hollywood legend Ricardo Montalbán in 1970. We specialize in giving rising talent the platform and tools necessary to succeed in the entertainment industry whilst enhancing the image of Latinx in media.
