Connecting journalists to local communities via text

The World

We here at The Takeaway are always looking to connect with local communities. So this week we’re hosting a summit with our friends at WLRN in Miami that’s made possible by the Knight Foundation. We’re experimenting to see how we can use text messaging as a tool for uncovering local issues that matter in Little Haiti, Miami. Can it help journalists and the communities they cover tell more compelling stories?

The Takeaway’s Digital Editor Jim Colgan is in Miami. He explains the design thinking process we’re using.
