When local news dies, accountability dies with it. Together we're launching a not for profit news experiment, Greenlight.

Our goal is to provide coverage of the stories that matter most to your community, without all the noise.

We've done that by eliminating the things that get in the way like advertising, clickbait, and hidden agendas. Now your community is at the center of the news discovery, gathering, and promotion process.

We won't get everything right, but above all we'll always work to make the news more local, democratic, and free.

Your Neighborhood Newsroom.

Welcome to Greenlight, a community news project that puts you at the center of the newsroom.
