Public Herald is a nonprofit organization dedicated to investigative journalism in the public interest. We work with communities facing challenging conditions to tell stories through engaging online multimedia and foster transparency initiatives that put data in the hands of those who need it most. We are focused on accountability where people are silenced by the abuse of power from government, industry, social or environmental circumstances.
The Mission: to support and conduct investigative journalism in the public interest; to educate; to finance; and to provide an outlet for citizen engagement concerning community interest and needs.
We strive to work in collaborative public environments, hoping for a new model of investigative journalism that unites the Community, the Artist and the Journalist on a mission to report the truth where injustice threatens the public good.
Public Herald has traditionally been fiscally sponsored by the Mountain Watershed Association 501(c)3 with respect to large grants or donations.
