Spreading the knowledge

One of our focuses this year was education. This year we were able to give seven workshops to people from middle schoolers to entrepreneurs about solutions journalism, how to create content with purpose and how to use storytelling to advocate for your community. 

2023 Goals 

Investing in community journalists 

The Solutions Journalism Network, an organization that promotes solutions journalism, awarded us a $20,000 grant to train community journalists throughout Puerto Rico. While reporting on the ground, we have met groups documenting their communities. In 2023, we’re focusing on amplifying their efforts through trainings and resources.
