About La Gente

La Gente Newsmagazine, born from the Chicana/o movement, arose out of a need to represent the Latina/o community and their issues in UCLA and the greater Los Angeles area. In an effort to be the voice of Latina/o experiences, we have featured news and opinions that highlight our communities since 1971. We continue to provide the latest on art, culture, community, and university news and events relating to our communities.
