Support Local Journalism

The Relevance Project seeks to promote the importance of local journalism and its vital role in democracy. These resources are aimed at helping newspaper media recapture and bolster the message that it is the primary source of local news and information.  The newest series includes one-page-instant training sessions you can download from the Advice for the Newsroom section.  As a reminder, association and newspaper staffs can use everything on The Relevance Project website without charge. Credit Newspaper Association Managers (NAM) for the initiative.
