Why We Invested
This grant will support the Your Voice Ohio Project to test, evaluate, and refine sustainable methods for engaging and serving communities through better participatory journalism. The Jefferson Center for a New Democratic Process will explore the complementary roles of public deliberation, community organizing, digital engagement, and new journalistic approaches in helping community based journalism thrive. In an effort to build the foundation for more effective and responsive models of journalism, this project will explore and evaluate how new approaches can support journalists in their efforts to not only better understand their communities, but also begin the process of rebuilding relationships of trust.
