Note from the editor

The mission of the Center for Cooperative Media is to grow and strengthen local journalism, and in doing so serve New Jersey citizens. We do that through the use of partnerships, collaborations, training, product development, research and communication. We work with roughly 250 partners throughout the Garden State, including hyperlocal digital publishers, public media, newspapers, television outlets, radio stations and multimedia news organizations. We are a grant-funded organization based at Montclair State University's School of Communication and Media. Contact us at info@njnewscommons.org. Visit centerforcooperativemedia.org/history to learn more about the Center and our work.
