About our journalism
“If I had know that the major news outlets were not attend press conferences and that there were no questions being asked from within our community, I would have created MIWISCONSIN 20 years ago. The pandemic shows us a hard reality: we have been hidden away because no one asked questions that impacted our community directly and we have missed out on millions of opportunity because no one ever told us they even existed. The hispanic community should defend and monetarily support news outlets and journalists that work to defend their communities.” – Alejandro Riano, CEO and Founder of MIWSISCONSIN.ORG
