CivicStory is a nonprofit news site and producer of short videos highlighting sustainability and creative change in New Jersey cities and beyond. Our mission is to advance solutions-based news about citizens transforming communities.
HOW IS OUR WORK UNIQUE?
Our stories stay relevant over time, and can be repurposed for educational use.
We view citizens not as consumers but as builders of relationships and communities.
We think critically about language and meaning in a diverse democratic society.
We assume that all citizens are ultimately responsible for our society as a whole.
We showcase New Jersey while engaging in a national conversation.
We believe that a thriving democracy requires an involved citizenry, and that daily news has the potential to foster learning, innovation, and problem solving in America and throughout the world. Increasing this capacity is a matter of significance and urgency.
We value the unique talents and experiences of each human being, and envision a diverse, contributive society in which all citizens participate meaningfully and constructively.
