Public Square

Amplifying local voices in global spacesĀ 


Public Square is a cooperative newsroom that positions journalism as a civic tool to amplify local voices in global spaces and employs a collaborative multimedia and solutions-driven approach to news and storytelling.

Our reporting is spearheaded by local reporters equipped with media and newsgathering training and is furthered by forums that engage community members and storytelling that centers on social and economic justice, racial equity, voices of the Afro-Caribbean diaspora, and the immigrant experience.
