This report was possible in part thanks to the generous support of the Nathan Cummings Foundation. We are particularly grateful to Elizabeth Méndez Berry, director of the foundation’s department of Voice, Creativity and Culture, for her support.
We also received funding from two donors who prefer to remain anonymous. We are grateful to them.
This project would also not have been possible without the leadership and trust of Sarah Bartlett, dean of the Craig Newmark Graduate School of Journalism at CUNY, who had the vision to create the first fully bilingual Spanish and English journalism master’s degree program at a critical time in the lives of Latinxs in America.
Our team of researchers was led by Graciela Mochkofsky and Cristina Maldonado, with the essential participation of Andrea López Cruzado. Sofía Cerda Campero and Vanessa Colón conducted dozens of interviews. Gabriela Anderson helped corroborate data. Christine McKenna was our web developer and designer. Deborah Stead edited this report.
Finally, the pioneering class of bilingual students of 2017 built the basic directory from which this project grew: Nicole Acevedo, Mónica Almeida, Jesenia Correa de Moya, Gerardo del Valle, Constanza Gallardo, Estefanía Hernández, Lidia Hernández, María Camila Montañez, Hanaa’ Tameez, Joaquín Torres, Alma Sacasa, Julia Sclafani and Maritza Vilela.
