Democracy Day

journalism support

International Democracy Day is September 15. In 2022, hundreds of news organizations came together to report on the threats to democracy as part of the inaugural Democracy Day collaborative, led by The Center for Cooperative Media, INN, Hearken and the News Revenue Hub. (Read here for the backstory)

Democracy Day is an effort to draw attention to the crisis facing American democracy, provide the public with the context and information they need, and bring all types of media together to sound the alarm collectively. We want to incentivize media coverage through a nationwide journalism collaborative, one day where print, radio, TV, and digital media on the national and local level can come together to report on the threats to democracy that we’re facing.

Check out the hundreds of stories produced in 2022, many of which are available to republish.
