Read our La Voz COVID-19 special section stories in English
Given the toll that COVID-19 is taking on Latino communities, we’ve decided to publish a Spanish-language print section that dives deep into efforts to battle the virus in Latinx neighborhoods and how it’s impacting daily life.
Last December, we debuted La Voz Chicago as an experimental section in our newspaper and later turned it into a 24/7 online-only news product at suntimes.com/la-voz.
But given the toll that COVID-19 is taking on Chicago’s Latino communities, we decided to publish another Spanish-language print section that dives deep into efforts to battle the virus in Latino neighborhoods and how it’s impacting daily life. This latest section — overseen by our La Voz Chicago editor, Jackie Serrato — is being inserted in today’s Sun-Times and also is being distributed for free in select Zip codes.
English versions of these Spanish-language stories are listed below.
La Voz Chicago is underwritten by a grant from AARP Chicago. Additional funding for today’s section was provided by the Google News Initiative. If you have any questions or comments about today’s section, please email me at email@example.com.
