Humanizing America



The Futuro Media Group, led by award-winning journalist Maria Hinojosa and her digital editorial team, investigates how the nation’s changing demographics are impacting the 2016 election. Humanizing America is a series of documentary shorts presenting underreported human stories from the American electorate. We incorporate gripping character-driven storytelling, cutting-edge infographics and a strong sense of location and community, with the immersive first-person reporting style of Maria Hinojosa.
Humanizing America was selected by The Pluribus Project as part of the organization's Narrative Collaboratory. 

Each video is only 5 minutes long and discussion guides are available for  use with the videos.
