Alhambra Source story makes INN’s Best of Nonprofit News 2018

Location

Alhambra , CA United States

Every day, nonprofit newsrooms across the U.S. produce rigorous public service journalism that elevates diverse voices, informs communities and holds the powerful accountable.

In 2018, the newsrooms and journalists who are members of the Institute for Nonprofit News — nearly 200 news organizations — told us stories no one else was reporting and changed communities for the better. We invite you to revisit the best of those stories here, on immigration, local accountability, child welfare, education, climate change, health and health care, gun violence, criminal justice, community well-being, sexual misconduct, money and influence, world affairs, and U.S. democracy.

Judy Chu, D-California, presented a resolution based on the students’ work to Congress in September. This story showed the importance of community reporting and how seemingly “small stories” and efforts can scale up to issues of national importance. Read the Story »
