Latinos In Media was created in March 2015 by Video Producer, Jen Knoedl after returning from 7 years in Chicago.
“It took me going to Chicago to realize that I had a deep desire to connect with my Latino roots. There are so many different cultures in Chicago that there didn’t seem to be one underdog (i.e Hispanics) as I interpreted growing up in Austin.”
Immediately upon returning to Austin, Knoedl began to establish (and re-establish) relationships with old friends, producers and acquaintances. As she shared her ideas for creating a community aimed at the edification of Latinos In Media, many confirmed the need for such an organization.
