We are a Latina-led digital publication headed by Nancy Flores, an award-winning local journalist most recently writing for the Austin American-Statesman and Austin360. Nancy, the daughter of Mexican immigrants, has specialized in covering underrepresented Latinx communities in Central Texas. Nancy’s contributions to Austin’s Latinx community recently earned her the Award of Excellence in Media Arts from the city’s Mexican American Cultural Center. In 2019, Remezcla named her among the nation’s “Latino Columnists You Should Be Reading.”
We’re reimagining and relaunching Austin Vida, which has a long history of showcasing Latinx cultural and musical happenings in the city. Join us for this exciting new chapter!
What Austin’s Latinx Community is Saying
“I’ve always felt there was a huge gap in the media landscape that focuses on the Latino experience. I believe that’s how I was introduced to Austin Vida in the first place, as I sought out more community voices that aligned closer to mine.”
“It’s hard to find stories that celebrate me. If there are no stories that celebrate me, then it’s hard for the general public to do so.”
Join a community where our cultura and stories are never an afterthought and our Austin vidas are always celebrated.
