inewsource is a 10-year-old investigative nonprofit, nonpartisan newsroom dedicated to improving lives in the San Diego region and beyond through impactful, data-based investigative and accountability journalism. We were founded in 2009 amid a deep recession and a catastrophic downsizing of newspapers and network media in San Diego and across the country. Some of the greatest casualties of the disruption were investigative journalists, bulldogs in the industry whose passion was uncovering wrongs and wrongdoers in the name of the public good. That is why we have made it our mission to fill that gap by delivering original investigative reporting that is precise, transparent and impactful.
The Herald is one of 43 newspaper titles owned by Everett-based Sound Publishing, the largest community media organization in Washington state. We are the primary source of news and information for the communities we serve as well as the leading editorial voice. We are part of the greater Seattle metropolitan area. The fundamental philosophy that our founders committed themselves to from the first day they began publishing on Jan. 5, 1901 is still at the center of what we attempt to do every day: “There is in this community no one so poor or insignificant that The Herald will not defend him if he be wronged, no one so high and powerful that the Herald will not fearlessly attack him if he seek to do injustice.”
The Community Voice is a bi-weekly, state-wide publication that targets Kansas' African-American community. The publication was founded in 1993, and purchased by the Gooch family in 1996. The publication was originally a monthly, and has been bi-weekly for almost two decades. Until 2015, our coverage area was predominately the Wichita community, but we've expanded into the Kansas City market, focusing heavily on the Kansas side of the metropolitan area. Again, in response to a request to expand, we formally expanded our coverage in 2018 to include the Missouri side of the Kansas City metropolitan area.

Closed Position: Santa Fe has become increasingly divided by wealth and poverty. Power is concentrated among the aging elite in the east and north sides, while young families and the middle class living on the Southside often are shorted when it comes to services. Median housing prices are at an all-time high all over the city, and while the Southside has the lowest-priced housing, it has food deserts and fewer services. Until the last two years, there were few doctor’s offices. Despite city efforts to encourage more diverse grocery store and restaurant choices, they are few and far between. Schools are crowded, and developed open spaces such as parks aren’t as prevalent. But in all these instances, there are people and organizations working toward equity and improved quality of life. Telling those stories builds momentum.This Report for America corps member is assigned to cover Santa Fe’s Southside — its immigrant and indigenous communities, service industry workers, entrepreneurs and families — through stories that impact their lives. The reporter covers the business and culture outside of the city’s contemporary downtown core, especially taking into account women, people of color, historical context, access to health care and education. The reporter joins our two full-time staff news writers to produce content for our weekly newspaper and website. They contribute a long-form cover story to the rotation every four to six weeks. The reporter is mentored by two editors with 40 years of combined experience in print, television and online media, as well as an art director who offers training and partnership on photographic and graphics to accompany the storytelling.
