Are you a journalist who wants to shift from candidate and horse-race focused coverage to stories that better reflect the needs of people in your community?
Applications will open from January 31 to February 14 for the 2023 Advancing Democracy Fellowship. This joint initiative from Hearken, Solutions Journalism Network and Trusting News will equip newsroom-based journalists to transform their coverage of democracy through solutions-focused reporting that builds trust and avoids polarization.
The program includes a modest stipend, along with training and resources that support innovative news coverage focused on promising responses to our democracy’s challenges in ways that build civic engagement, equity and healthy discourse.
Application deadline is February 14, 2023.
For more information, watch the “Ask Me Anything” session from January 31, featuring insights from participants in the first cohort.
