Organization Description: 

Established in 2012, Fuente Latina’s mission is to increase Latino (Spain, U.S. and Latin American) support for Israel by ensuring that global Spanish language media have the facts they need to accurately cover Israel, the Middle East, and the Jewish world.

Grant Purpose: 

The Los Angeles launch of Fuente Latina builds a Spanish language, pro-Israel media presence in Los Angeles, to positively impact perceptions of Israel and the Los Angeles Jewish community in Spanish-language media and in the wider Spanish-speaking community.

Thanks to the generous support of the Jewish Community Foundation of Los Angeles, hundreds of Latino journalists and media influencers will now have a local Latina source of information to empower them to tell accurate stories that inform millions of Latinos about Israel, the Jewish community, and the Middle East.
