Our Approach & Values
Centered in the community, we focus on amplifying unheard and ignored Latinx voices and monolingual Spanish-speaking immigrants. We create content in Spanish and ensure it’s not just literally translated but culturally translated too. We partner with organizations that want to deliver the right message to Latinx and Spanish-speaking communities while honoring their rich diversity. Whether we’re working with clients or our users, we honor the community’s needs through translating, consulting, and creating accurate bilingual content. We deliver resources, projects, and programs in the utmost respectful and culturally accurate way possible.
Why does our work matter? Latinx communities are typically ignored in targeted marketing, overlooked when companies launch new products and misunderstood when companies do acknowledge the Latinx consumer. This reoccurring act of neglecting communities of color, particularly immigrants and monolingual Latinx communities, contributes to institutionalized poverty and lack of access. We encourage and invite companies to implement diverse and inclusive practices into their business to prevent institutionalized racism as much as possible.
It’s never enough to provide information to our readers if this information is ignoring cultural relevance. This way, we can guarantee the best quality and provide accurate information to our readers and clients.
Accessible & Actionable
Our goal is to make crucial information as accessible as possible so our audience can obtain and maintain sustainable lives. From immigration law to practical life-hacks, we provide tools for people to advocate for themselves in daily life. The mere existence of The Cultura Media is to provide practical knowledge to our users and help organizations create pathways for their clients to access their services.
