Latino Communities Organize for Influence and Support

Solutions Journalism Network

Created by Jenn Rosen, Solutions Specialist

The Latino community is the largest ethnic group in the United States, making up more than 18% of the total population. And, according to the Pew Research Center, the racially and ethnically diverse community is the second fastest growing group in the country. With that size and momentum comes opportunity. The stories in this collection, all of which were either supported by Solution Journalism Network’s Renewing Democracy Initiative or produced by a partnering media outlet, highlight responses that are built on a rich history of community organizing and civic participation in U.S. Latino communities, including solutions to violations against the Voting Rights Act and the disproportionate impact that COVID-19 has had on Latino communities in the U.S.
