Background
Since its inception in 1971, La Gente de Aztlan has provided in depth information about art, education, health, and other issues that concern and affect the Chicana/o, Latina/o and Native American communities. La Gente de Aztlan is a University of California, Los Angeles newsmagazine publication that focuses on Chicana/o, Latina/o, and Native American youth in Los Angeles as its main readership. It is a bilingual publication put together by UCLA students in an effort to outreach to these communities. La Gente is the longest continuous running publication of its kind. La Gente de Aztlan is a bilingual newsmagazine published three times during the academic year. In 1996 the magazine had a circulation of 20,000 copies with a collective readership of over 60,000 people. Today the magazine publishes less than 3,500 with a readership of nearly 10,500. La Gente was adversely affected by statewide budget cuts and must now rely on outside funding. Although La Gente targets the 15-26 year old population of Los Angeles, it has effectively reached people from various age groups and backgrounds. La Gente is distributed to high schools, community organizations, panaderias, carnicerias, and tienditas throughout Los Angeles. In addition, it is also distributed to selected correctional facilities, colleges, and universities across the southwest.**Please note that accents have been eliminated inorder to accomodate and facilitate the use of all types of web browsers.Researchers who would like to indicate errors of fact or omissions in this finding aid can contact the archivist at archivist@chicano.ucla.edu
