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

Sacramento

Focus

The View From Here projects start with spending time in the communities where Capital Public Radio will be reporting to ensure that their journalism is accurate, relevant, and impactful. Meadowview isn’t a neighborhood where CPR has a strong presence or following. And after the mass media parachuted in to cover the shooting of Stephon Clark, many residents are both weary and leery of reporters.

As part of this work we will use community listening sessions to establish an understanding of how CapRadio can better cover South Sacramento in a way that’s meaningful and representational of the people who live and work in Meadowview.


Membership details

As part of Captial Public Radio's ongoing The View From Here project, The Listening Post Collective provided a small grant and support for jesikah maria ross and her colleagues to host community listening sessions around Meadowview.
