Cleveland’s Testify Project Aims to Rethink News Coverage of Criminal Justice

From a story on cjr.org by Lauren Harris headlined “Inside The Marshall Project’s local reporting collaboration in Cleveland”:

EVEN AS THE FINANCIAL MODELS OF TRADITIONAL FOR-PROFIT JOURNALISM have been crumbling at the local level, groups across the US—and the world—have been working to reimagine what local news can look like: how it’s conceived, constructed, distributed, and even defined. In many cases, localized outlets and projects have gained support from national foundations; in others, they’re supported by national institutions. Such is the case with Cleveland’s Testify project, supported by national nonprofit The Marshall Project, a news organization dedicated to reimagining coverage of criminal justice.
