Introducing the inaugural issue of our community wellness print publication! Three years ago New America Media launched VoiceWaves, a youth-led community news website dedicated to engaging local young people in journalism, amplifying the voices of Long Beach residents, and shining a light on the health disparities that exist in our communities. We are distributing 10,000 copies in English, Spanish and Khmer to local restaurants and cafes and to our community partners.



VoiceWaves is a Long Beach youth-led journalism and media-training project. The youth, ages 16-24, are learning to report, write, and create digital journalism content. Their reports will raise awareness of community health issues and activate change.
