Mission

We are a nonprofit, independent news organization that gathers and disseminates news about important public policy issues to Miami and Key Biscayne. Our project will develop strong community journalism and put it on solid footing, allowing us to develop sustainable newsgathering. Our mission is real news: transparency and accountability in government, without fear or favor. As community is a threatened barrier island at the intersection of state, county, and federal parks, our unique environment will be a distinctive part of our coverage, along with arts and culture. Our longterm vision: to expand strong nonprofit hyperlocal news to other communities in Miami, especially underserved ones.

Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Democracy depends on good journalism, but journalism is in crisis. This is especially true at the local level. Thousands of news industry jobs have disappeared, meaning many critical community issues are simply not covered at all. The news vacuum -- or news desert -- creates an environment where misinformation or even disinformation spreads on various social media platforms. Our vision aims at building sustainable hyperlocal news that serves the community. Our plan is to expand across Miami-Dade County, establishing sister news outlets, especially in historically underserved areas.
