    This description of Longoria Emilio Alvarez Icaza's work was prepared when Longoria Emilio Alvarez Icaza was elected to the Ashoka Fellowship in 1995.
    Emilio Alvarez is helping to ensure that Mexico's commercial media are engaging with the country's current struggle for democracy. He does this by enabling citizen organizations to utilize the media, and each other, more effectively. In so doing, he is reshaping the field of "social communications" in Mexico.
