Boyle Heights Beat is a community news project, produced by youth who serve as journalists in their immigrant communities. The website is published in both English and Spanish, and includes a community calendar for user-submitted events.
boyleheightsbeat.com needed an updated look-and-feel and improved functionality. I migrated their extensive archives into a new WordPress site, installed and configured a new theme, and removed unneeded plugins to improve site performance.
I continue to work with Boyle Heights Beat as their audience expands and the site publishes a greater volume of content.
