The Gastón Institute aims to be a resource for media outlets. Our work with media aims to expand knowledge and understanding of the Latino community and of public policy issues that are vital this community. Media groups are encouraged to contact us at anytime. We can be helpful to your work in the following ways:

  • Developing a Story Concept: if you need background knowledge on a particular community or public policy issue, we can direct you to research and sources that may be helpful to your work.
  • Finding Experts: our research team is available for interviews on their areas of expertise.  If we don’t directly cover the area you are interested in, we can tap our broad network of partners and put you in contact with an expert on the topic.
  • Data: our Demography project provides a wealth of demographic data on Latino in Massachusetts.  If you are looking for specific information, we can point you to the correct sources.

Deadlines:  If you are on deadline, please let us know so that we prioritize your request.
