Bringing Stories Home is the Pulitzer Center’s initiative designed to help local U.S. newsrooms cover the big, underreported stories that affect us all—and through education and other outreach promote the public engagement that is essential if our democracy is to thrive.
News outlets eligible for participation in Bringing Stories Home include all those serving local U.S. communities. The Pulitzer Center is already actively working with partner outlets in many cities, from Milwaukee to Louisville to Tucson to St. Louis. Bringing Stories Home represents a major investment in local news, providing resources to cover stories that might not otherwise get told.
You decide what underreported stories your community needs to engage with, and we support that reporting and champion it, including creating educational materials and organizing events to expand the reach of your stories and the conversation about them.
The Pulitzer Center values data, investigative, and accountability journalism projects that tackle systemic issues and hold to account powerful local figures.
