Washington, D.C., Dec. 2, 2010 - The Heritage Foundation, the nation’s most broadly supported think tank, today launched a new website to give Spanish-speaking Americans access to its cutting-edge analyses and policy recommendations to solve the nation’s most pressing problems.
“The new website, Libertad.org, will give Spanish-speaking Americans access to the top-flight research and informed, conservative commentary that has helped Heritage build a center-right majority in the nation as a whole,” said Heritage Vice President for Communications Mike Gonzalez.
“Surveys show that vast majorities of Hispanic Americans already embrace conservative attitudes, such as the desire for smaller government and less regulation,” Gonzalez noted.
“They also cherish personal freedom and free enterprise—the promise of which drew them and their forebears to this country in the first place,” he added. “Heritage Libertad will provide the hard facts and conservative analysis too often ignored by the liberal-dominated media currently serving the Hispanic community.”
According to Gonzalez, “the new site will include information, statistics and analysis of special interest to Hispanics, as well as blogs, audio and visual content in Spanish.”
“Heritage Libertad will include a robust social media platform for sharing and discussion,” he said, “with an intention to give conservative, free market-oriented Hispanics the opportunity to meet, exchange views and form online communities of their own.”
