Why we exist
The absence of Latino voices in American news media today is disturbing, if not outright frightening. These needed voices are extremely scarce and often, completely non-existent. As the nation continues to see the growth of Latinos, its largest ethnic community, this endemic disparity has reached crisis proportions. This vast inequality must be addressed now as a key priority of an urgent and common call towards a more equitable evolution of the American News media in the new century.
To empower Latinos to tell their own story and tackle the inequity of Latino voices by giving disadvantaged young people the education and training opportunities they need to be not only the witness but also the storytellers of the history Latino are making in America.
