Real-World Impacts

Legend
Real World Impact
Self reported impact on the communities the newsroom serves.

We highlight issues that aren't covered in mainstream media by including fresh takes on stories that've already been told and turning the mic over to communities of color and poor white communities to tell stories that haven't been told at all. The result is greater attention to topics that haven't received attention, such as hurricane survivors' long term barriers to recovery and felony voter disenfranchisement. At the same time, communities report feeling a greater sense of self-determination when they have a say in the narrative.
