Global Voices and the North American Congress on Latin America (NACLA) have launched a new partnership that will combine Global Voices’ focus on citizen media and NACLA’s analysis and expertise to bring our readers original, in-depth coverage about the region.
NACLA, founded in 1966, is an independent, nonprofit organization that seeks to “foster knowledge beyond borders” by providing information and analysis on Latin America and its complex relationship with the United States:
“We believe that knowledge is essential for change, so we use a unique combination of information/media activism and popular education to provide people the tools they need to understand the world in order to change it”
Every month, GV and NACLA authors will work together to provide content related to a specific topic. A podcast with interviews, analysis, and additional reporting on the issues analyzed in the posts will be available at the end of the month.
We begin our partnership with the theme “Migrant Journeys.” In July we will be covering a wide range of issues related to migration: from the immigration bill that is currently being discussed in the United States Congress, to the human stories behind migrants’ dangerous trek north through Central America and Mexico.
