We are interested in "community news" from the streets that is impacting those on the margins here in Vancouver. We are passionate about stories that are not given a voice elsewhere. We are interested in what you have to say and how you see the world or issues facing marginalized individuals in your community. We are interested in those seeking to create social change.
We provide basic tools to those who are vetted through our portal and enrolled in a broadcasting or journalism course and for those who are not enrolled in a course you are also welcome to join and contribute, there is no fees. We provide letters of recommendation with the possibility of future contract work for all of our contributors.
