Olivia Sun is a photojournalist with the Colorado Sun in Denver, covering statewide politics, education and the environment. Before this, she spent two years in her home state at the Des Moines Register photographing daily news, focusing on economic disparities, investigations and coronavirus coverage. Sun holds a bachelor's degree from the University of Iowa, and while studying journalism and film she interned at The Chautauquan Daily in western New York, the China Daily in Beijing, and NPR's science desk in Washington, D.C. Sun's coverage of the 2020 caucus season has appeared in Liberation, the San Francisco Chronicle, The Associated Press, The Washington Post and more.
The Colorado Sun was founded in September 2018 as a journalist-owned, reader-supported, nonpartisan news organization dedicated to producing in-depth coverage that sheds light on important places, policies and people in Colorado. We emphasize coverage of issues and places that often don't get as much attention from others. Our mission is to produce statewide coverage for Colorado's 5.8 million people. The Sun is a Public Benefit Corporation that always puts service first.
