Cicero Independiente

Bilingual, community-powered independent journalism


Our mission is to provide bilingual, accurate reporting, connect residents to important resources and information, and equip our neighbors with journalism skills to engage in local democracy. We believe in bringing people of diverse media backgrounds together to co-create news that is useful and necessary. We believe in journalism that is reflective of the knowledge, resilience and organizing in a largely immigrant community, journalism that holds those in power accountable and, most importantly, that is accessible in multiple languages and formats. We envision a future where we can all participate in documenting our stories for the generations to come. A future where we can all participate equally in transformational change.
