As Latino Muslim leaders, Media Producers, and Media Analysts we are often contacted by National and International Latino Media outlets such as CNN in Spanish, BBC, NPR, Univision, Telemundo, the Huffington Post, and others. For over a decade, we have built a solid-proactive narrative in the Spanish-speaking media that has gained more balanced and positive media coverage than currently exists in the English media today. Come learn how you too can change the conversation by effectively communicating and educating the general public as we offer unconventional answers and insights to common stereotypes, fears, and other security-based issues as Trump prepares to take office.

Como musulmanes latinos trabajando con los medios de comunicación en Español tenemos una buena relación y recibimos una cobertura positiva equilibrada.

Descubre lo que estamos haciendo de manera diferente para contar nuestra narrativa por CNN en Español, BBC, NPR, Univisión, Telemundo, el Huffington Post, y otros.
