We’re restructuring local news, equipping Atlantans whom journalism has overlooked and misrepresented to access information and work with journalists. In the year since we launched, we’ve produced free collaborative journalism with West End, paid and trained six community journalists to keep telling local stories, and presented our work through live events and with local partners—and we’re doing it twice more across metro Atlanta in 2021.

National press have called us an “innovative local model” for journalism that’s “integrated into local ecosystems.” Join us in this work, and help keep creating paid opportunities for Atlantans to choose, produce, and present journalism that matters.
