Fund Independent Journalism!

With the world's biggest media outlets being owned by conglomerates, independent journalism is more important now than it has ever been.

We're two black journalists who want to cover the stories that matter, and hopefully change the way people see the world. We realize the only way we can do this is if we strike out on our own, but we need help. A lot of the stuff we're doing is coming out of our own pockets and that can get expensive. Ideally, we'd like to be able to pursue stories and pay rent, which is where you come in. Your contributions will not only allow us to continue working on our social media/journalism ethics series, but it will give us the opportunity to work on future projects we want to publish.

Contributions will go to transportation, office supplies, and labor. This will cover everything we need for the next six months. If you're serious about giving your money to women, now is the time.
