The National Association of Latino Independent Producers (NALIP) is a national membership organization that addresses the professional needs of Latin@ content creators. We stand as the premiere Latino media organization, addressing for sixteen years the most underrepresented and the largest ethnic minority in the country. NALIP was founded in 1999 by a group of Latino producers, content creators, academics and media advocates. During the first NALIP conference in San Francisco in June 1999, NALIP was organized by the conference participants, and the mission and organizational guiding principles were adopted.
