What Our Gente is Saying
When we set out to launch a new chapter of Austin Vida, we first sought the input of various community members to learn more about the comunidad’s information needs. Here’s a sampling of what we’ve been hearing and why we are pushing forward with Austin Vida’s mission:
“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.”
