In the summer of 2020, The Omaha Reader and El Perico will receive a fellow through a yearlong grant from “Report for America,” an organization that places emerging journalists in local newsrooms to report on under-covered issues and communities. The focus will be to expand our local coverage of Latino issues. While we’ve long prioritized coverage of everything from immigration to quinceañeras, there are still many human stories going untold.


Top Local Stories

Good morning,

Today we have stories about Douglas County’s new juvenile justice center, MUD customers reporting scam calls and Nebraska’s support of a Texas lawsuit suggesting widespread voter fraud.
