This year, our news team brought you more than 1,500 informative news stories throughout 2020.

  • We continue to be your primary source on what is known about Coronavirus in OC, what is secret and what it all means.
  • We also equipped residents with the latest comprehensive information during this year’s wildfires — while after the fact breaking down the systemic issues around wildfire planning and response management.
  • We kept you up-to-date on Black Lives Matter protests and rallies across the county and we continue to do deep-dive reporting on local policing and government budgeting.
  • We provided the fastest and most informative coverage of the 2020 election in Orange County including a voter guide on issues and live election results.

Our hope at Voice of OC is that all this information puts you as an Orange County resident in a position of power to effectively engage with your local government to improve and defend local quality of life.

Consider taking a moment before Year’s End and help ensure that this kind of nonprofit, accountability-focused newsroom continues to be there in 2021 asking the same tough questions that empowers residents to really stay informed and ultimately get involved.
