Report Local—Issue No. 2

Every month, our Report Local newsletter delivers a round-up of impactful journalism to your inbox. With stories from Report for America corps members plus examples of significant public service journalism from local news organizations across the country, Report Local showcases and celebrates the power and promise of local news.

In Issue No. 2, we highlight the “Stirring the Waters” collaboration between corps members Molly Born, Caity Coyne and Will Wright as they explore the concerns around quality drinking water in central Appalachia and the basic human rights that residents are being denied. We also highlight an “On the Ground” essay from Alexandra Watts, and a volunteer service project from Samantha Max who is teaching students to podcast. And read about the great work from corps members Michelle Liu, Obed Manuel and Sarah Anne Hughes.

in the local journalism section, read about impactful stories from The Times-Picayune, Northwest News Network and Reveal from the Center of Investigation Reporting, the San Francisco Chronicle, the South Florida Sun-Sentinel and the Kentucky Center for Investigative Reporting and Ohio Valley ReSource and Center for Public Integrity.
