Press On: Southern Media Community Needs Assessment

Press On is a Southern collective that strengthens and expands the practice of journalism in service of liberation. They are journalists, storytellers, and organizers rooted in, and practicing solidarity with, oppressed communities that birth social movements.

Why We Invested

By providing a diverse set of resources including trainings, fellowships and opportunities for network-building, Press On helps journalists and storytellers produce reporting that’s driven by communities that are building power to create transformative social change. Their project, Mapping the Needs of the Southern Media Ecosystem, is a year-long in-depth assessment of community media across the region.
