We are dedicated to produce journalism of public service, in Spanish, independent, truthful and non-partisan, on immigration issues, state policy, government and community, and state affairs of North Carolina.Furthermore, to divulge information that empowers and encourages the diverse community of Latino / Hispanic immigrants in the state to generate movements, so that they can be more involved in social, political and economic changes that benefit them.
Enlace Latino NC is an independent nonprofit news organization. We are the first digital media in Spanish that covers politics, government, immigration, and community affairs in North Carolina. We publish nonpartisan and truthful journalism, professional and investigative news in several ways: a website, podcast, a radio show and newsletters aimed at different Latino immigrant communities in our region.We are creating the first space committed to our readers to encourage them to be more involved in the social and economic changes that benefit their community. After more than 15 years of covering the state legislature, and other stories in Hispanic media in North Carolina we know the political leaders, the non-profit organizations that serve the community, and the complex diversity of the almost one million Latinos that reside in the state. We strongly believe that if Latino / Hispanic immigrants in North Carolina want to make changes they need to be informed about the policies that affect them.
Who we serve
We know that for Latino immigrant communities in North Carolina, politics feels like something very far away. What happens in the State Capital, the General Assembly and the Government is distant. Normally we believe that public policies, laws and the Government do not have or have a slight impact on our lives.
However, the reality is that they do have it although it goes unnoticed on a daily basis. Enlace Latino NC aims to help close that information gap between the diverse Latino immigrant community and the policies that affect them.
