Hitting Home is a series that chronicles the impact of COVID-19 on five New Mexico towns: Shiprock, Gallup, Las Vegas, Carlsbad and Anthony. All are steeped in history, struggle, and now, perhaps, a battle for their lives. Over the course of a year, we’ll return to these towns again and again, producing multimedia portraits that capture these unprecedented times. Navajos, Hispanics, roustabouts, ranchers, business owners and immigrants are among the many people we’ll bring to life in stories, photos, videos and audio files, read aloud in Diné, Spanish and English. The project was made possible by the generosity of community residents, who welcomed us into their lives.


This project is a collaboration of Searchlight New Mexico and Littleglobe Inc. 

Hitting Home is made possible through the generous support of these foundations and individual donors like you.
