¡Ven aquí and learn why Maria del Mar Piedrabuena and Juliana Holguín, the ladies of Tu Prensa Local, are indispensable assets to our East End Community! Tu Prensa Local, a Spanish-language, nonprofit, nonpartisan media organization serves the Latinx community as a provider of news, resources, and information.

Tu Prensa Local seeks to produce community-centered, high-quality, daily local news stories in Spanish for their readers on the East End. Founded in 2020, Tu Prensa Local is committed to their mission to inform, engage, and empower local Latino immigrants in their language as it is crucial to fostering civic participation and involvement. Join us and learn how the ladies undertook an incredible feat, the challenges they faced, and what they have learned in the process of creating this invaluable organization on the East End.
