What is NewPrensa?

NewPrensa started as a way to highlight Latinx news and excellence in the Twin Cities. As it evolved, NewPrensa now focuses on the most pressing news affecting any underrepresented community in Minnesota. We’re a news aggregator but we won’t hesitate to let you know our thoughts.

Who’s creating the Newsletter?

Hey, I'm Maria!

I'm half of the NewPrensa writing duo. My pronouns are she/her. As a young, bisexual, Puerto Rican woman, I've always had to make an effort to find accurate news that was relevant and important to me. Since moving to Minneapolis, I've fallen in love with the culture and community I'm surrounded with daily. With that, I've been more excited than ever to bring BIPOC-focused news to the Twin Cities. More about me, I'm a big sports fan, musical enthusiast, and an avid board game player.

Hi there! I'm Helene

My pronouns are she/her. I'm the other half of the NewPrensa writing duo. I love learning about digital humanities, digital citizenship, and serving my Minnesota community. Writing NewPrensa allows me to engage in those passions while, most importantly, empowering members of the BIPOC community. I like to cook, camp, and make pottery in my free time. Any new art form I can try, I will.

And I'm Shota!

I design the NewPrensa newsletter. My pronouns are he/him. As an Asian male, I want to share the accomplishments and issues revolving around people of color in local and national news. I hope to educate, inform, and, most importantly – empower members of the BIPOC community in our area. I love to make music and go on walks in my free time, and my favorite genre of music is R&B
