Donate to Free Press' News Voices Project
What would happen if you had the chance to reinvent local reporting?
That's what the News Voices campaign is all about. We think that newsrooms produce better journalism when reporters listen to the concerns of everyday people and incorporate these perspectives in their work.
We partner with newsrooms to ensure that coverage responds to local needs and better represents the community. We work to elevate the voices of local residents, especially those of people of color and other communities that the media have too often harmed or failed to cover. And we advocate for sustainable funding for public-interest journalism and community-information projects.
Help bring News Voices to more communities across the country: Donate today.
News Voices is a project of Free Press, a 501(c)(3) nonpartisan organization that fights for your rights to connect and communicate. Free Press is working to create a world where people have the information and opportunities they need to tell their own stories, hold leaders accountable, and participate in our democracy. We fight to save the free and open internet, curb runaway media consolidation, protect press freedom, and ensure diverse voices are represented in our media.
We engage in political advocacy through our companion 501(c)(4) organization, the Free Press Action Fund, lobbying Congress and state legislatures to serve the public interest.
Free Press and the Free Press Action Fund don’t take a cent from business, government or political parties. We rely solely on the generosity of individual donors and charitable foundations to fuel our work.
