The Latin America News Dispatch produces original news stories about Latin America, the Caribbean, U.S. foreign policy, and Hispanics in the United States. Put simply, we dispatch news from the Western hemisphere.

The Dispatch was founded by four graduate students in the Global Joint Master’s program in Journalism and Latin American Studies at New York University. We strive to produce reliable, original reporting and we abide by traditional American journalistic ethics of independence and impartiality.
