Newspaper uplifts positive stories

To connect and communicate among Spanish-speaking people in the Spokane area and region, Maria and Troy Gaines have been publishing La Prensa Bilingue monthly for 28 years.

"We uplift the good things people need to know about what Hispanic people are doing and about the positive aspects of the community," said Maria.

"We present Latinos in a positive way, reporting about Latinos doing good things in the community, about professionals serving in the community and about Hispanic people of faith, so the community can see Latinos beyond common media portrayals," Troy added. . . . .
