Deadline this Friday! Join the ONA Local organizer cohort

Applications to start a new ONA Local group close Friday, Feb. 1. We are looking for connectors, problem-solvers and journalism champions motivated to build the skills to lead innovation in their communities. Organizers say their involvement with ONA Local has made them a “go-to voice in [their] city for digital media” and inspires their day-to-day work.
