Renaissance Journalism is excited to assist a powerful collaboration of Bay Area news organizations who are identifying the biggest landlords in the Silicon Valley and whether they are making life better or worse for local communities.
The investigation is called “Who Owns Silicon Valley?” and is the product of a year-long analysis of more than 500,000 property records and extensive reporting by the partners, which include Reveal, The Mercury News, KQED, NBC Bay Area and Telemundo 48 Área de la Bahia.
Renaissance Journalism is accepting proposals from news media organizations, journalists and other multimedia storytellers for innovative, community-focused Census 2020 projects that target hard-to-count groups in the Bay Area and help to educate, motivate and encourage residents to participate in the Census.
On August 21, Renaissance Journalism and the Silicon Valley Community Foundation (SVCF) co-hosted a lively conversation among 40-plus Bay Area journalists and community leaders about the 2020 Census. We challenged these “trusted community messengers” to brainstorm creative ways they could work together to increase participation in the census, particularly in “hard-to-count” groups, such as immigrants, racial minorities and the homeless.
