Report Local—Issue No. 3

Every month, our Report Local newsletter delivers a round-up of impactful journalism to your inbox. With stories from Report for America corps members plus examples of significant public service journalism from local news organizations across the country, Report Local showcases and celebrates the power and promise of local news.

In Issue No. 3, we highlight reporting from corps member Samantha Max, who uncovered the difficulties that families in rural Georgia can have when trying to find mental health care for their children. Read about what corps member Mallory Falk sees when reporting from the U.S.-Mexico border in an “On the Ground” essay, and a Q&A with corps member Manny Ramos. We also highlight great work from Eric J. Shelton, Sarah Anne Hughes, Obed Manuel and Caity Coyne.

In the local journalism section, catch up on a powerful story from the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel that followed a family around for two years to look at student turnover, an investigation from the Miami Herald and Tampa Bay Times and tools from the Reporters Committee for Freedom of the Press.
