Gather supports community-centered journalism and the journalists behind them

Gather is a project + platform to support community-minded journalists and other engagement professionals. The mission: make journalism more responsive to the public’s needs and more inclusive of the public’s voices and diversity, by helping journalists, educators, and students who share these values find each other, find resources and best practices, and find support and mentorship.

Gather is a collaborative project led by the Agora Journalism Center and co-designed with our steering and advisory committees, which include journalists, technologists, researchers, and engagement practitioners.

This project + platform is made possible through the generous grants from the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation, the Democracy Fund, and, and the News Integrity Initiative.
