“I support the Tiny News Collective because I want to make it easier for others like me — women, people of color, young people, and those with nontraditional journalism backgrounds — to enter this industry and build successful companies.”

Kara Meyberg Guzman, Board Chair. Co-Founder, Santa Cruz Local

I'm part of the Tiny News Collective because I believe journalism's future begins with anti-oppression, and Tiny News is working to build a more socially-just news ecosystem.
