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.

San Juan

From October 16 to October 31, 2017, an Internews assessment team carried out an information ecosystem assessment with residents in Puerto Rico to gauge the information needs and access of affected communities, and to learn about the situation of the Communication with Communities (CwC) response across the country.


The assessment includes interviews with Puerto Rican residents, representatives from local volunteer groups, non-profit organizations, local and regional media, government officials, technologists and national and international humanitarian organizations in four different locations in Puerto Rico; namely, San Juan, Corozal, Mayagüez and Toa Alta. The CDAC Network Common Needs Assessment Tools were used as reference to guide key informant interviews.


In response to the findings of the assessment, Internews partnered with NetHope to create Información Como Ayuda (Information as Aid), a social media-based recovery-focused news feed. The project, led by journalist Justing Auciello and a team of citizen reporters, publishes a variety of recovery news and information on a dedicated Facebook page, which has become a primary platform for more than a third of Puerto Rico’s three million residents. The unique service connects affected communities with responding organizations and volunteers, and provides a platform and amplification for the voices of affected community members.
