For over a decade, Renaissance Journalism has been at the forefront of reimagining journalism as a powerful catalyst to advance equity and racial and social justice.
It is this vision that drives us to experiment with bold, innovative approaches to news and storytelling, community engagement and collaboration-building.
Founded in 2009, Renaissance Journalism aims to cultivate an enduring shift in the way journalists think about and cover complex social issues. These are issues that have adversely, disproportionately and historically affected communities of color, the poor and working-class, and other marginalized groups.
Through our transformative initiatives, we give journalists and community storytellers the tools and support they need to produce strong, principled journalism that unpacks systemic injustices, disrupts harmful narratives, educates and empowers our communities, and amplifies diverse voices.
