The CTLatinoNews.com (CTLN) and Latino Communities Reporting Lab are enthusiastic to announce a new partnership that amplifies the voices of Connecticut’s local Latino communities.
Collaboration between CTLN and the Record Journal’s Latino Communities Reporting Lab will foster storytelling that showcases Latino success and contributions, and sheds light on injustices and inequalities to foster greater understanding and a more inclusive community for all.
“As the first English-speaking news and information source dedicated to Hispanics-Latinos throughout Connecticut, I am excited to add a new partner that shares CTLN’s mission of elevating the visibility and voices of the community,” said Hugo Balta, owner, and publisher of Latino News Network (LNN). “We always strive to contribute by expanding an individual or organization consistent with this purpose.” LNN owns CTLN, one of three individual websites serving New England Latinos.
As a four-month-old initiative by a fifth-generation family-owned 154-year-old local news outlet, the Record Journal’s Latino Communities Reporting Lab has ambitious plans to engage central Connecticut’s local Latino community, where Latinos represent 29.1% of the area’s population, including 58.2% of Meriden students, and 8% of Wallingford’s population, including 19.6% of Wallingford students.
“We are pleased to partner with CTLatinoNews.com to further our mission to amplify the voices of our local Latino communities and to provide empowering, fact-based news, information, and resources for our Latino communities,” said Liz White, publisher of the Record-Journal Powering the Latino Communities Reporting Lab.
