Beat: Inequality and income disparities in Mission District of SF

This city Reporter is assigned specifically to inequality, covering it as a singular beat. The Mission District, with its stark income differences, is an ideal place to take on this impactful issue through creative angles, framing, reporting. Mostly, we would like a gumshoe, first-rate Reporter that has some experience in communities of color, is interested in issues of poverty and wealth, and works well on a team.
