Voices for Justice is a project to acknowledge and honor the 200-year legacy of Latino journalism in the United States. The story begins on September 7, 1808, with founding of El Misisipi in New Orleans. It was the first newspaper by and for Spanish-speaking people in the U.S. El Misisipi set the stage for the thousands of publications, broadcast, and Internet news outlets currently serving Latinos.
Yet, the story of Latino journalism - and the countless innovative publishing pioneers and courageous journalists - is little known.
The Voices for Justice project will make their story known through a one-year national bicentennial campaign, a documentary film, a companion book, and an interactive website.
