About Noticias para Inmigrantes

Noticias para Inmigrantes is among the fastest growing nonprofit digital media ventures in the country reaching over 6 million Spanish-speaking immigrants living in the U.S. In 2020, we created Noticias para Inmigrantes as a response to the growing need for reliable, trustworthy news about policies and resources for immigrants. Since then, we have built a base of 6 million Spanish-speaking immigrants on various social and digital platforms like Instagram, TikTok, Facebook Messenger, and YouTube. Our ability to deliver trusted information and resources and mobilize our subscribers for civic engagement has made our organization a standout earning us an Anthem award in 2024. 

Noticias para Inmigrantes uses lean startup methodologies and other audience-centered strategies to scale our digital media relationships, civic engagement, advocacy impact and revenue. Here’s some more information on those strategies:

  • Functional Organizing: Our model is based on the idea that membership organizations can experience explosive, financially sustainable growth when they provide a robust set of benefits and services that have an outstanding value to the people they seek to organize (“functional organizing”). Learn more about our model for scalable citizen organizing in the article, “The Secret of Scale” from the Stanford Social Innovation Review. 
  • Lean startup methodologies: Our approach is centered on identifying challenges and unmet needs in people’s lives. We use lean startup methodologies to rigorously test ideas for services and benefits that could help address those pain points and provide real value in people’s everyday lives. Read more about our approach to experimentation in the article, “The Promise of Lean Experimentation” from the Stanford Social Innovation Review. 

We are immigrants and children of immigrants who are passionate about leveraging digital media to place the power of information directly into our communities. We have a mighty growing team that brings a diverse mix of skills and experiences in media, technology, social impact, marketing, immigrant services, advocacy, education, and civic engagement.
