HC 2013: Year’s top stories

We’d like to take this happy-new time of year to express gratitude to our collaborators and readers and wish you all the best in 2014! We published more than 240 original posts this year. Most were authored by our talented team of interns, volunteers and supporters. Without them, we’d be unable to bring you so many dispatches from D.C.’s Latino community–stories that too often go unnoticed by the local press.

Here’s one last look at our favorite stories, videos, poetry, cuentos, and interviews with Latino artists, writers, and other scene makers.
