“Alegría” means joy in Spanish. The Latin-American ethos of a positive attitude in the face of ANY challenge is what it means to live in “Alegría”. Alegría is a mindset, an attitude, a spirit, a mark of the soul of the solution creator. JOY is an act of resistance – resistance to being stigmatized, resistance to oppression, resistance to the “odds stacked against you”, a resistance to being ignored and overlooked by the majority.
We believe the modern “LatinX” story needs to be told. We tell stories from all corners of the LatinX world of personal triumph and success, and of the remarkable feats LatinX people achieve. We believe that these stories can transform the next generation.
Alegría is a community that connects, inspires, and highlights the beauty, the lineage, the thousands of years of positive contributions to this planet by artists & leaders of color – No matter where you or your ancestors hail from, Alegría embraces, promotes and highlights the unique contributions of the LatinX experience.
ALEGRÍA is a print and digital multimedia company within the LatinX space, which elevates the collective consciousness of its audience by creating and nurturing its members, embracing and teaching the Alegria way of life, the richness of the LatinX ALEGRÍA experience in the U.S and the world abroad in a bilingual format because LOVE tastes better in different languages.
We bring the aesthetic of our roots to a contemporary language & design. Through our ALEGRÍA community, we hope you will be inspired to make a difference in the world through connection, empathy and and unity.
“We are highlighting the stories that TRULY matter about those who have historically being overlooked and under-represented. It is our mission to uplift people’s perception about the beauty of the LatinX experience and culture.”- Davina Ferreira, Founder, Alegria Magazine
