Local News Matters: Creating — and Sustaining — a COVID-19 Information Hub

  • We joined forces with the podcast “Race and Coronavirus” to help draw attention to their work and add audio content to our website. Each week, we posted the podcast episode along with a written piece by one of the two authors, Levi Sumagaysay and Pati Navalta.
  • We partnered with KBBF, a bilingual radio station in the North Bay, to cross-post their audio content about the pandemic in a project with JSK alums Aaron Foley and Jeremy Hay.
  • We embedded a link to a creative pandemic site called Isolated by JSK alum Andy Losowsky.
  • With coordination by Krista Almanzan and bilingual freelancer Jessica Pasko, we worked with several other news sites, including Voices of Monterey Bay, Salinas Californian and Santa Cruz Local, to create a multimedia package on the intersection of the pandemic and housing struggles for farmworkers; a combination of photos, audio, data and text was shared and published across multiple platforms in both English and Spanish.
