Excerpt from ABC7:
“In San Francisco, for over 50 years the arts and media organization, Acción Latina has also been key for the Latino community.
“This is a place where we showcase emerging and established LatinX artists. They can submit a proposal and tell us what story they want to tell,” said Fátima Ramírez, Executive Director of Acción Latina.
Acción Latina is also responsible for publishing the historic El Tecolote newspaper.
For 53 years El Tecolote has been informing the Latino Community throughout the Bay Area. This is the longest-running consecutively published bilingual newspaper in California.
To keep these organizations thriving the Latino Community Foundation is now investing $2 million dollars to support 28 organizations. Acción Latina and La Peña are part of that group.”
