Help keep La Jornada Filipina free

The future of Spanish in the Philippines looks grim. Although many of us expressed our intention to revive it, our collective effort is not enough.

There are currently 13 million Spanish-era documents sitting on the dusty shelves of the National Archives of the Philippines. The death of Spanish in the country robs us of the opportunity to piece together our history.

Hence, our mission has never been more important: to bring you news and features in both Spanish and English and to promote the use of Spanish in the Philippines.

Your support will make a difference in making sense of our Filipino identity, especially in the era of fake news and cyber propaganda. Please consider contributing today to help us continue our work.

Thank you so much.
