The Voices For Justice September 17, 2008           
Voices for Justice bicentennial celebration kick-off event
PLACE, New Orleans, LA

November 14 - 18 2008
Voices for Justice presentation
Recovering the U.S. Hispanic Literary Heritage Conference     
University of Houston, Houston, TX

The Voices of Justice committee is making a call to Latino media,
organizations, and community leaders to hold celebrations across the nation
to acknowledge and commemorate the 200 years of Latino newspapers. These
events are key to making the public aware of the long history of U.S. Latino
print journalism. Help us to tell this important and inspiring story to the
entire nation.

Become part of the legacy.  If you know descendants of early Latino
publishers, or you can share a story about the Latino press, or you have old
Latino newspapers or photographs, let us know. 

Individuals and organizations can join in the celebration by organizing
events during the bicentennial year, beginning in September 2008 and running
through September 2009. During this time Acción Latina will sponsor,
co-sponsor and assist with events to raise public awareness of the history,
impact and future of news media serving the nation’s burgeoning Latino

Everyone and anyone can contribute. Newspapers can publish a series of
articles. Descendants of a family that published a newspaper can pull
photographs and memoirs out of the attic.  Schools and universities can
organize a program or conduct historical research.  Journalists associations
can honor pioneers. During this time Acción Latina will serve as a
clearinghouse for these activities and list events on our online calendar of
events page.
