Subject: New Report on "Ethnic Media: Their Influence on Politics and Participation"

Dear MAC Members,

Important thinkers in the world of ethnic media share their ideas for the future with you in a new report:  Ethnic Media: Their Influence on Politics and Participation

The report is from the 2010 Breaux Symposium sponsored by the Reilly Center for Media & Public Affairs at Louisiana State University’s Manship School of Communication in partnership with New America Media and the McCormick Foundation.

Sandy Close, executive director of New America Media; Bill Imada, CEO of the communication firm IW Group that specializes in multicultural markets; Jon Funabiki, developer of the Renaissance Journalism Center at San Francisco State University; Sergio Bendixen, an expert in Hispanic public opinion research and eight others offer their analysis and advice.

Topics include how to connect with younger ethnic audiences, understanding and using new technology, playing a larger role in America’s journalism, preserving ethnic media’s advocacy role, and building political power.

To receive a copy of this important and timely report, please call (225) 578-7312 or email Masudul Biswas at [log in to unmask]<mailto:[log in to unmask]>.

Executive summaries of the report are also available online in four languages, English, Spanish, Arabic, and Chinese online at or at<>

The Breaux 2010 report is being released as the 2010 U.S. Census is making public state-by-state numbers on ethnic population growth. Census figures show significant growth rates in Hispanic and Latino, Asian and other ethnic groups.  The Breaux 2010 report is a resource for media owners, publishers and editors interested in addressing the challenges and opportunities offered by the growing populations.
