About our journalism

“I love The Land because their stories are authentic and center Cleveland neighbors and neighborhoods that often go without fair and balanced coverage.” –Leah H.

The Land is your source for community journalism. A nonprofit newsroom focused on local news, The Land is changing the game for neighborhood residents of Cleveland who have long gone without coverage or accurate representation in the media. Increasing readership by more than 1000% since its launch in May 2020, The Land is a growing, trusted source of online news that delivers in-depth stories at no cost to our readers. Join our movement and be part of rewriting local journalism for Cleveland.

The Land uses its journalism to 1) Work with our neighbors to find and report on solutions that build community and strengthen all Cleveland neighborhoods, 2) Provide resources for taking individual or collective action, and 3) Collaborate with other news organizations to empower communities to make change.
