Community-powered journalism in Dallas, Texas


Our nonprofit journalism amplifies voices in disinvested neighborhoods and explores solutions to our city’s systemic inequities.

About our journalism

We focus our community journalism efforts in the South Dallas and West Dallas neighborhoods, and we’re a catalyst partner of the Dallas Media Collaborative, with newsrooms, universities and nonprofits working together find solutions to our city’s affordable housing issues. We launched a journalism pathway from Dallas high schools to Dallas newsrooms, so that within 10 to 20 years, our newsrooms will reflect our city. And in 2023, we’ll become the 10th newsroom to host the Documenters Network.
