Americans have grown less engaged with local politics and elections, despite high volumes of information available online and a growing interest in national politics. In this conversation, we’ll explore insights from News Hole: The Demise of Local Journalism and Political Engagement, and hear a first-hand perspective from nonprofit news organization Documented.
Local news organizations are recognizing and responding to a long-unanswered need to better represent people of color in their communities through their staffing and coverage. In this conversation, we’ll share highlights from Sourcing Diversity, Shifting Culture: Building “Cultural Competence” in Public Media, which explores how leaders in public media are starting to make this shift, and hear first-hand from nonprofit news organization WFAE.
When local newspapers shutter, communities lose vital information on local government, its leaders, and the actions they take. In this conversation, we’ll hear findings from News for the Rich, White, and Blue, and hear first-hand from nonprofit news organization Nevada Independent.
We are a nonprofit too. Donate to Giving Compass to help us guide donors toward practices that advance equity.
