With more than ten years of experience, Mission Local is more than a neighborhood news site. We are a local news site that covers city-wide issues from the ground up. We are digital-first, led by a Latina and focused on producing trustworthy journalism. There are no shortcuts to the latter. We don’t aggregate. We make phone calls, read documents, pound the pavement, attend meetings. We talk to people on the street.

Beat: Inequality and income disparity in Mission District of San Francisco
Position: This reporter is assigned specifically to cover inequality and income disparity. The Mission District, with its stark income differences, is an ideal place to take on this beat—one that will have a citywide impact. We touch on inequality in other stories, as do others, but it is a beat that merits its own reporter who can spend the time to think creatively on story angles, framing and 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 in a team.
