Local News Is
TOO VITAL TO VANISH
Community newspapers are key to thriving societies, economies, and democracies.
Over 1,300 communities across the US no longer have local news coverage. One in five Americans are at risk of losing their local newspaper, and with it, the institution that binds them to their neighbors and reports on the people, places, and issues closest to their lives. Despite innovation in digital media, neither global platforms nor nascent start-ups are meeting these needs.
WE ARE REIMAGINING THE FUTURE OF LOCAL NEWS
We are a nonprofit dedicated to keeping local news in
Our mission is to create a future where local news thrives and people in every corner of this nation benefit from locally-controlled and community-grounded press.
We work with communities across the nation to catalyze the capital, new ownership structures, and business model transformations needed for established local and community news organizations to thrive and remain deeply grounded in their communities.
Keep Local News in Local Hands
