I am writing to express my concern that has been brought to our attention by our members that an estimated 5 million Verizon subscribers have lost access to Univision on-air programming.
During the past week our viewers, political leaders, and community groups have spoken out about how important Univision’s networks and stations are for providing information and news to the Hispanic community, especially in light of recent natural disaste
The National Hispanic Media Coalition (NHMC) is outraged that at a time when catastrophic events have occurred in Mexico and Puerto Rico, Verizon has chosen to blackout Univision, the primary source of news for millions of Spanish-speaking and bilingual L

Univision Communications Inc. opposes the 85th Texas Legislature’s passage of Senate Bill 4. As passed, this law is unconstitutional and discriminates against the Hispanic community.
"Dear Ms. Brown, I am writing to express disappointment, and frankly disbelief, that the Commission on Presidential Debates has not chosen a Hispanic journalist to moderate the presidential debates."
We commend Reps. Sánchez, Butterfield and Chu for their leadership in helping effect change to an outdated vernacular.
Univision Communications Inc. opposes the recent legislative actions in North Carolina and Georgia, which are divisive and discriminatory against LGBT employees, audiences, families and friends.
