Press On

 
Press On (presson.media) is a newly formed organization that developed as a result of more than two years of research and practice focused on finding ways to foster journalism that is responsive to social movements in the U.S. South.

Movement journalism is the practice of journalism in the service of social, political, and economic transformations that make it possible for everyone to have power over the conditions of their lives and communities. We believe movement journalism has the potential to transform relationships between social and racial justice movements and the practice of journalism.

Our current projects include:

  • A Southern Movement Journalism Reporting Project for 8-10 reporters, launching June 2019
  • Asset-Mapping of community-centered news outlets throughout the South
  • A national training program in movement journalism
