We're building a new newsroom to serve Oakland. Tell us what you'd like to see.
The team behind Berkeleyside is launching a local journalism platform to serve Oakland in spring 2020. This new newsroom will be dedicated to community-centered reporting, delving deeply into core issues, opportunities and challenges facing the city through an equitable approach to local journalism.
We'll build this new local journalism platform in the coming months, and want your input to help inform our development. Please take a few minutes to share your feedback and ideas with us below. Learn more about our forthcoming Oakland newsroom here:
