Imagine partnering with a newsroom that’s dedicated to your community — shining a light on what you care about most, with plenty of resources and support.

That’s the vision of the Civic Info Consortium, a proposal to unite New Jersey residents, journalists, universities and tech innovators to supportive transformative news and information projects.

Together, we’ll amplify underrepresented voices and inspire civic engagement. How? By giving you and your neighbors the information you need to participate in your community, share your perspective and vote.

This fall, state lawmakers can make this vision a reality — but they need to hear from you. Join the campaign to create the Civic Info Consortium.
