La Gente Newsmagazine, born from the Chicana/o movement, arose out of a need to represent the Latinx community and Latinx issues in UCLA and the greater Los Angeles area. We feature 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.
For over 40 years in our print issue, we have been serving the Latino community, including students, businesses, organizations, activists, educators, professionals, leaders, abuelitos, tias, tios, etc.
We offer great deals and low rates for our advertisers with special discounts for multi-issue contracts and UCLA campus organizations.
