Cicero Independiente

Cicero Independiente investigates underreported issues, elevates stories of people in our community and holds the powerful accountable through community-rooted journalism. We offer paid opportunities for local residents to gain journalism skills and report on issues that matter to them. We foster and support civic participation and a sense of belonging in a community that has traditionally been excluded and harmed by profit-driven, white-led media. Cicero Independiente is creating opportunities for more BIPOC storytellers and advancing equitable ways to create news.
