Imagination is the only key to the future. Without it none exists - with it all things are possible.

Project Blog:
Latina Voices
This new Web site will offer daily news and commentary by and for Latina women, covering such topics as immigration, health care, politics, education and culture. Project leader Teresa Puente, a journalism professor at Columbia College Chicago and member of the Chicago Sun-Times editorial board, said, “Much of what is out there for Latinas is basically fluff. Personally, I don’t care how J. Lo has decorated her nursery. Latina women want information that is deeper than that.” Follow her progress here.
