Canopy Atlanta partners with Atlantans to choose, report, and present journalism responding to community needs, helping residents tell stories about the issues that matter most to them.
Canopy Atlanta will pay and train South DeKalb community members—our Fellows—to learn journalism skills over a six-week program. They will work with other journalists to report and write the stories in this issue. Those Fellows will use their new skills to continue working on behalf of their communities.
To choose the stories in this issue, Canopy will connect with community members and convene a South DeKalb Community Editorial Board to help guide story angles.
Canopy Atlanta is transforming how Atlanta’s journalism is produced by partnering with residents to provide information and tell stories about their community. Join us in making sure every Atlantan can access the information they need by supporting our work today.
