Denise Soler Cox and Henry Ansbacher, the co-creators of Project Enye (ñ ), a multimedia documentary project focused on telling the stories of first-generation American-born Latinos who have at least one parent from a Spanish-speaking country.

In honor of Hispanic Heritage Month, Project Enye (ñ) has started an effort to build community among the large and growing population of 'Enyes' in the United States. They have launched an aggressive campaign to ask Twitter to allow the 'ñ' in Twitter handles. An 'Enye (ñ)' is a first-generation, American-born Latino who has at least one parent from a Spanish speaking country.

Project Enye notes that, to its credit, Twitter allows its users in the United States to use Ñ in its search terms, hashtags, and page descriptions. If you speak Spanish, you are visible on every corner of Twitter, except in one place: your Twitter handle.

Twitter users are spreading the word for Hispanic Heritage Month and contributing to the movement:






Project Enye is asking people to join the movement so that there is one voice united in sharing the same message at the same time, spreading this call to action through Facebook, Twitter, and Tumblr that cannot be ignored! #WhereInTheWorldIsTheÑ

Check out pics from last year's Latin Grammy Awards, many of which are Enyes!
