El Tecolote Newspaper

ElTecolotes

Founded in 1970 by San Francisco State University La Raza Studies Professor Juan Gonzalez, El Tecolote newspaper is our organization’s oldest and most prominent program.

El Tecolote is produced primarily by scores of volunteers who lend their writing, translating and photography skills to ensure that the newspaper hits the streets every two weeks. Acción Latina publishes 10,000 print copies of El Tecolote and distributes them to more than 350 locations throughout the in the inner and outer Mission, the Excelsior, in South San Francisco, in the East Bay’s Fruitvale area, and in several locations in Marin County with heavy concentrations of Latinos.

El Tecolote is the longest-running Spanish/English bilingual newspaper in California. In 2014, the paper was voted best community newspaper by the SF Weekly, and profiled by the San Francisco Chronicle as part of its “A Changing Mission” multimedia feature.
