City Bureau is Bringing Journalists and Communities Together to Encourage Civic Participation

A Chicago-based non-profit is aiming to redefine what local media means by working with communities to democratise journalism skills and encourage civic participation.

Based in the South Side of Chicago, City Bureau’s work with people in the area is split across three programmes: a paid 10-week fellowship where journalists of all skills and levels report on issues of interest to the community; a ‘documenters’ strand, where anyone can apply to document events in the public interest and receive journalism training to do so; and the public newsroom, a free weekly workshop where journalists and readers get together to discuss and share resources.
