Media Chinampa
Becoming reporters, columnists, radio show hosts, TV show hosts, news anchors, producers, independent news outlets
Media Chinampa focuses on nurturing and growing Latinx leaders in the media field in Utah.

This network started at the Imaginemos Utah Summit, where young Latinx leaders came together to create a 5-10 year collective vision of where the Latinx community needs to be leading in Utah. This vision revolves around the framework of Chinampas and Communities. All leaders that are part of Imaginemos Utah follow the Norms.

The purpose of Imaginemos Utah is to gather influential Latinx young leaders, in order to empower and lead our collective vision.
