Citizen Power Tool Box |Citizen Journalism

We have taught hundreds of citizens the skills they can use to cover the news in their communities. Much of traditional media no longer has the resources to report local news so citizens can play an important role in getting the word out about the issues their towns and cities face and the pragmatic solutions that are available to address them. The Citizens Campaign can help you learn how. Our history of success includes creating the first Hyperlocal News Association and launching the award-winning Paterson Press.
