Citizen Journalism Training. Help Us Tell Omaha’s Stories.

From the pandemic to protests to everything in between, 2020 highlighted the successes and shortcomings of local media. While we’ve worked tirelessly to tell you the important stories of a chaotic year, we could have easily doubled or tripled our coverage. Local media have seen reductions in staff that led to more stories falling through the cracks, even before the pandemic. That’s why we need your help.

  • The Bellevue Sonic where two workers were killed and two others wounded in a November shooting reopened Wednesday.
  • Two former Catholic churches are becoming apartment buildings for Omaha’s seniors and new mothers in crisis.
