Coverage of news from Cicero in a bilingual digital format

In a city long lacking a local news source, Cicero now has a bilingual, nonprofit digital newsroom founded by a trio of young founders focused on building a 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’re not just providing news and updates on what’s going on; We’re really trying to build a community around our news,” said Irene Romulo, one of the three co-founders of Cicero Independiente and director of development and community engagement.
