ROANOKE, Va. (WDBJ) - The WDBJ7+ Digital News Desk hosted a Mesa Redonda Thursday: a round table in Spanish focused on the Latinx and Spanish speaking communities.

In the discussion hosted by Leanna Scachetti and Jane Caffrey, we invited local experts and leaders to answer questions submitted by Casa Latina which was mined from their social media accounts. The Mesa Redonda originally aired on the WDBJ7 Facebook page live.

Topics included technical vaccine questions, discussion on information accessibility and other resources available to the community.
