OpenNews community support request
We're available to help move forward your ideas to change and transform journalism. At OpenNews, we specialize in helping individuals work on projects, events, and activities that will shift how their organizations function.

Please tell us a little about what you're working on and how we might be able to help. We're focusing our support on projects that help create more inclusive, equitable cultures within newsrooms and in particular:
* help define career pathways for tech within journalism
* support journalists of color, and/or
* support technologists at regional and local publications.

Projects can take shape in a lot of different ways—from a collaboration with other organizations to a small brown-bag lunch in your own newsroom—and we have a range of types of support to match! The questions below help us better understand what you're interested in working on, and how we might be able to help.

We review these requests on a rolling basis and will get back to you within a month or so.

Are you a part of a marginalized group in journalism/tech? If yes, please tell us which group(s).

What project would you like us to help you with?

Your answer
What are you hoping your project will accomplish? What's your future vision for your project?

What groups do you expect to work with for this project?
Who in the journalism-code community do you expect to work with? Are there particular groups in your newsroom you'll work with? These could be collaborators and/or participants.
Your answer
In what city will your event take place?
If it's not tied to a particular geographic location, that's ok. Just curious if there is a geographic focus.
Your answer
When would you like this work to take place?
If you have a date set already, let us know! If you're not sure, just give an estimate. Also, please let us know if there is anything time sensitive in your planning—if you need to hear back by a certain date, let us know.
