El Sol del Valle talks about Hispanic Heritage Month and other local news
Each week, El Sol del Valle features local and national news stories in Spanish as well as columns written by local Latino leaders.
The Sopris Sun, led by editor Raleigh Burleigh, originally launched the idea in March 2021.
This year, they’re partnering with the Aspen Daily News to expand the paper and include some of the week’s biggest stories from both publications.
Aspen Public Radio talked Thursday with Vanessa Porras, a contributing editor at El Sol del Valle, about upcoming events celebrating Hispanic Heritage Month and about other stories featured in this week’s paper.
“It’s one of the only Spanish printed media that we have here in the valley,” Porras said. “I think it also allows people that haven’t previously been heard to share their thoughts and share their stories.”
You can find the weekly paper, which is published Thursdays, at local newsstands and inside both The Sopris Sun and the Aspen Daily News.
Aspen Public Radio is now collaborating with El Sol del Valle by providing some of its stories in Spanish to the paper for publication.
