New York City’s Leading Black, Latino, Workers & Immigrant News Publishers
I.Q. Inc promises to confront inequities, elevate solutions and amplify the Black, Latino, Worker, and Immigrant experience by reporting, collecting, and sharing stories about real people in communities across New York City and our country. By joining forces and providing a platform to examine these experiences in one place, we can shape how New York City and beyond understand and address systemic issues of race, justice, and equity. It is through collective understanding that we bring about collective impact.
We have a bold vision: to be the most trusted news and information source for, about, and by Black, Latino, Workers, and Immigrant people. However, we invite everyone invested in Black, Latino, Workers, and Immigrants people’s futures — whether you’re us or not — to join us on this journey and make this work possible.
Our first publication, The Immigrant’s Journal, was founded in December 1998 to serve immigrants from the Caribbean, Africa, and Latin America, underserved communities in New York City experiencing severe discrimination locally and nationally. Subsequently, after September 11, 2001, it became worst for immigrants because all immigrants were blamed for the terrorist acts. However, almost one hundred percent of the terrorists came from Saudi Arabia, a country protected by Washington because of its vast oil reserves.
Our second publication, Caribbean American Weekly was cited by The NY Daily as the number one Caribbean-owned publication! A bold new idea in newspaper publishing, Caribbean American Weekly serves a blend of international news, sports, interviews, feature articles, political analysis without heavy controversy, local news, and informative columns to create a newspaper that readers read and share with others.
Our third publication, Workers’ World Today, founded in 2018, is a free publication is working with our Chamber partners, the Hispanic American International Chamber of Commerce (HAICC), the African American International Chamber of Commerce (AAICC), and the New American Chamber of Commerce (NACC), to achieve two unique goals: the Chambers and Workers’ World Today will, one, empower workers to start a union and, two, help all workers to make the transition from worker to a business owner. Is this a contradiction? NO; this is our new and real reality.
Our fourth publication, New Black Voices, was founded in the aftermath of the murder of George Floyd. We realized that the voice of Black America needs to be amplified and elevated locally and nationally. We saw what was happening across the United States as a call to action, one which all of our other publications answered since founding the first publication of The Immigrant’s Journal in 1998.

The Immigrant’s Journal
The Immigrant’s Journal Legal & Educational Fund, Inc. (IJLEF), founded in 1998, is dedicated to the diverse immigrant groups that constitute the rich fabric of New York. Our purpose is to educate and empower immigrant communities through developing and coordinating various plans of action on important issues crucial to their growth. In summary, our goals are:
• To educate the community members about the contributions that immigrants have made to the United States, economically and historically.
• To inform members of the immigrant community about the changes in immigration law, the educational system, health issues, voting rights, financial opportunities, and home purchasing.
• To legally assist and direct community members facing immigration and other legal problems.
For many years, new immigrants to the United States have been misinformed, embezzled, and denied opportunities. This resulted from the need for more credible publications and organizations geared toward new immigrants. Hence, The Immigrant’s Journal was launched to fill that void. The Journal provides up-to-date information on laws and regulations affecting immigrant communities and news and human interest stories. The Journal is published in English, Spanish, and French Creole. In March 2005, the first Annual Think Tank Conference: Protecting Immigrants, was held at the Brooklyn Museum, where the Immigrant’s Journal Legal & Educational Fund, Inc. Membership Program was launched. The event was a success, and the Membership Program currently boasts over 5,000 members.

We are ready to amplify the new black voices.
