NorCal Media Co-op: Intake Survey & Contact Form
In the birthplace of digital media, locally focused, ad-driven news organizations have taken an economic beating. In response, local community-news organizations are taking steps toward forming a shared-services cooperative aimed at building sustainability through shared business ventures.
If you're interested in getting involved — either as a representative of a San Francisco Bay Area and Northern California independent newsroom, or as an investor, supporter or volunteer — please fill out the following form.
NorCal Media organizing activities and business planning were conducted during 2018-2019 with facilitation by JGKSF Consulting, Watershed Media Project and by founding NorCal Media members, with advice and support from the U.S. Federation of Worker Co-ops, and a business-planning grant from Renaissance Journalism.
