Listening Post Collective MENU

MEET OUR LISTENING POST COLLECTIVE MEMBERS

The Listening Post Collective is a vibrant and collaborative network of partners across the US. The Listening Post team focuses on two things.

Supporting our members

We help establish projects and mentor local media working in communities that have news and information gaps. We provide funding, help conduct local research, and offer project support and coaching to local actors who seek to expand their community’s voice in media and make sure residents are better informed.

Sharing and learning

Through our playbook, newsletters and our toolkit, we share our strategies with a community of reporting outlets, journalism schools, and engaged journalism projects around the US. We also seek to learn from that same cohort, and collaboratively explore sustainability, reach, representation, and impact of local journalism.

Location

Riverside and San Bernardino

Focus

This spring, we are launching a new project in the Inland Empire in California seeking to inform and improve the information ecosystems in the cities of Riverside and San Bernardino.


Our three goals are to 1) conduct immersive, community-driven research which will provide a deep and meaningful understanding of how residents get and share news, 2) spread awareness of the challenges, gaps, and opportunities identified by this assessment, and 3) support the capacity of local news projects that directly addresses the needs, questions and concerns of local residents.


Ultimately, we aim to elevate the voices of those who tend to be left out of the news flow, and ensure that residents have better access to relevant, representative news and information. 


Andres Garcia, Assessment Lead

Andres Garcia is conducting media and Information systems research in the Inland Empire with The Listening Post Collective. He's also the communications lead for The Peoples Collective for Environmental Justice. He was born and raised in San Bernardino and currently resides in the Inland Empire. He runs Strange Truth, a personal brand and media project based in The City of San Bernardino.


Quinn Mays, Assessment Lead

Quinn Mays was born and raised in Moreno Valley, California and went on to receive an undergraduate degree in Media Studies at the University of San Francisco. While living in San Francisco, Quinn worked as a research assistant studying land rights movements in Indigenous communities across North and South America. In their free time, Quinn is an aspiring painter working to build their portfolio and hopes to create a larger community through the arts.
