Cultivating community news from the ground up

tune into your community

How do you know what your community is thinking or experiencing? That's easy: You ask them! The Listening Post ties together a framework for cultivating community-driven news + a platform for gathering perspectives and stories. We create opportunities for two-way conversations in spaces where communities already hang out, and use technology everyone has: phones capable of texting and mobile messaging.   

The Listening post is a 3-step system of community outreach
