Letter from the Editors: The State Press expands Spanish language content

In the coming weeks, our readers will find translated stories on our social media pages and website, with a Spanish section launching soon

Editor’s Note: This letter was translated to Spanish as part of our mission to make news more accessible to the Latinx community. View the translated story here. 

In these unprecedented times, access to well-reported, factual news is as important as ever. At The State Press, we strive to provide this news to our community, including consistent coverage of the COVID-19 pandemic and how it affects ASU and the surrounding areas. 

But, for too long, this reporting has only been available to English-speaking readers, with the occasional story in Spanish when possible. That is changing. 

We’ve hired an editor who will focus on translating our most crucial stories to Spanish for our readers as well as the addition of reporters who will write solely Spanish-language content. 

As we begin the transition to consistently publishing and prioritizing Spanish content, we acknowledge that this is something The State Press should have started doing years ago, and we are eager and ready to lead this expansion. 

In the coming weeks, our readers will find translated stories on our social media pages and website, with a Spanish section called La Prensa, launching soon.

As always, thank you for reading and supporting independent student journalism. If you are able, please consider donating to our newsroom and supporting these efforts.
