Covering Communities: A Project of John S. and James L. Knight Foundation, The Harwood Institute and The University of Kansas

Covering Communities Project

    This John S. and James L. Knight Foundation project partnered with The Harwood Institute for Public Innovation and William Allen White School of Journalism and Mass Communications to delve into what it takes to bridge the gap between the newsroom and the citizen on the street. The project was designed to benefit anyone interested in journalism, from a plumber with no prior knowledge of community journalism practices to a working reporter with years of experience, delivering a set of tools that anyone can utilize to achieve civic (tr)action through journalism. Though the burgeoning (yet ancient) world of community journalism is constantly evolving, the site does provide a solid base for community journalists. I served as a graduate and post-graduate research assistant and web master on the project.
