The Devil Strip is an independent community news organization that’s served the greater Akron, Ohio area for almost five years. This fall, we’ll become a community-owned local news cooperative to give residents a say in how our organization runs. This is how we’re aligning the incentives of our business and operational structure with the values of our mission and our journalism. In effect, instead of unionizing our newsroom, we’re unionizing our audience.
