Reporting Cicero’s news in a bilingual digital format

In a city without a local news source for a long time, Cicero now has a nonprofit bilingual digital newsroom launched by a trio of young founders focused on building community in their city and in their primary language.

Cicero Independiente delivers news in a bilingual format to Cicero, where 82.3% of residents speak a language other than English at home.

“We don’t just provide news and updates on what’s happening; we’re really trying to build a community around our news,” said Irene Rómulo, one of the three co-founders of Cicero Independiente and its director of development and community engagement.
