In our first three years, we worked in five communities—West End, Forest Park, Bankhead, South DeKalb, and Lakewood Heights. Before that, we piloted the concept in Pittsburgh.
We equip residents to access information about their communities, and to tell and share stories that are responsive to community desires.
Our work has been featured in Columbia Journalism Review, Nieman Lab, ProPublica, WABE, Saporta Report, and others.
Canopy Atlanta is transforming journalism by making it community-first, equipping Atlantans who’ve been overlooked and misrepresented by journalism to tell stories.
We believe in high standards of transparency and accountability to our communities, which is why we make information about our major funders and our tax filings easily accessible.
