La Raza Chronicles covers world and local politics, cultural and public affairs issues. We address community concerns, the struggles of indigenous peoples and environmental planetary rights, providing outlets for community organizations and artists to strengthen their impacts.
Our production team are activists involved in our La Raza community as well. We work cooperatively to develop contacts on the ground to bring truth and insight to breaking events.
