Factchequeado is an initiative led by Maldita.es, the first Spanish non-profit fact-checking media created to combat misinformation in Spain, and Chequeado, the first fact-checking organization in the Global South, to create a Latino community to counter Spanish-language misinformation in the United States, where the project is led by Tamoa Calzadilla from Miami, Florida.

APEVEX, based in the United States, is the first association of journalists to be part of the alliance."
