The Boyle Heights Beat is a bilingual newspaper and website based in East LA that trains youth to report on important issues in their community.

Their latest summer edition features stories on public health, discipline in local schools, and the mixed reaction to a new Starbucks in the neighborhood. For more, we're joined in studio by two of the young reporters, Brizette Castellanos and Dulce Morales.
