"To serve and educate"
Eduardo Barraza

He is a multimedia journalist with over two decades of experience. When he
began his career, he specialized in photojournalism working for various
newspapers and magazines. Later, he established an international journalistic
service that provided stories and photographs to publications in Mexico and the
United States.

Seeking to take his experience to a deeper level, Barraza founded the Hispanic
Institute of Social Issues in 1998, which has evolved since then into a grassroots
multimedia publishing agency, focusing on social issues affecting Latinos and
other minorities. In 2002, he founded
Barriozona Magazine, a bilingual print
publication that in 2006 developed into an E-zine to reach a greater audience.
Barraza is also the author of the book titled “The Shoes of the Immigrant and
Other Writings”.

As journalism continues to progress and is reinventing itself, Barraza has tapped
into the use of digital resources to reinforce the power of a press that presents
the voice of the people as opposed to “being the voice” of the people. As he
sees new challenges arise for journalism, Barraza strives to uphold the true
tenets of his beloved profession, among them truth, objectivity, and
