The mission of Voces Oral History Project at the School of Journalism within the Moody College of Communication, is to capture, preserve, showcase, and disseminate depth interviews with U.S. Latinos and Latinas who served their country in different capacities.
We believe that stories are powerful ways to make sense of our past -- and of our present. These stories, with men and women who have too often been left out of historical accounts, are crucial to telling the American Story.
For 40 hours, April 3-4, the Longhorn Nation will come together to support people, places and programs across The University of Texas at Austin. Make a gift to support the Voces Oral History Project!
Every gift matters! Your gift of $5 or more will go further when you give during a challenge or match. Follow us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram for details: @VocesProject
About The Voces Oral History Project:
Voces Oral History Project is a research unit housed within The University of Texas at Austin Moody College of Communication, School of Journalism, in collaboration with the UT Libraries. It was established in 1999 by Journalism professor Maggie Rivas-Rodriguez. The project initially focused solely on the WWII generation and then expanded its collections to include Latinos and Latinas of the Korean War and Vietnam War generations. In 2014, it added the Political and Civic Engagement. And in 2017, from donations of previously donated interviews, it added the Barrio Dog Prods/Jesús S. Treviño Collection and the Dr. Cynthia E. Orozco Collection.
