here is a common thread that binds us not
just to each other, but to the lands we, or our families left behind.
We felt it should be an individual as well as a collective
responsibility to explore that connection and that history.
NY Latino Journal is the beginning of an effort to help disseminate the
news, comments, opinions and perspectives that typically fall through
the cracks of politically and economically restrained media conduits.
This not-for-profit endeavor serves as a node to the vast network of independent media, focusing on original and syndicated content regarding the Latin American experience in New York, the US and the world.
In addition, we will offer interactive tools, such as the comments
feature and events calendar currently in operation, to further extend
our voices and collective efforts.
We have many questions about the past, present and future of our
cultures, respectively, and in the context of a Latino/Hispanic
aggregate in New York, the United States an abroad. In addition to
"authorities" and scholars, we want to engage the plumbers, the
mechanics, the law enforcement officers, the aspiring artists, the
activists, the men and women in military service and everyone in
between to find answers.
This venture is currently under development. All inquiries are welcomed. If you have a comment, suggestion, question or story you would like to share, please email us: firstname.lastname@example.org.
New York Latino Journal is looking to expand into the mainstream of
electronic, print and televised media. As one of the founding pieces of
a larger media network currently under development, the New York Latino
Journal has experienced modest growth since its inception. This
increase in visitor traffic has occurred without an ad campaign and
without image galleries or video features (these and other components
are currently being developed). This is a good indicator of the
direction we are heading in -- and the hundreds of reader comments and
letters testify to this end.
As we continue to build the operating infrastructure, we are open
to discussing sponsorship and advertisement opportunities at this stage
from respectable entities looking to engage the growing Latino market
in New York City and the United States.
