The San Francisco Public Press is an independent nonprofit, noncommercial news organization dedicated to producing important local public-interest news.
We do for print and Web journalism what public broadcasting has done for radio and television. We provide context-rich and evenhanded local journalism while encouraging community conversation. We work with more than 70 professional freelance journalists and a team of dedicated volunteers to report on and distribute independent news overlooked by the mainstream media.
The Public Press supports other local public media and public-affairs programs by highlighting the best stories from more than 30 nonprofit partners, including KQED Radio, KALW Radio, the Center for Investigative Reporting, California Watch, Bay Nature magazine, Earth Island Journal, Shareable.net, National Radio Project, New America Media, Mission Local, Oakland Local, the Commonwealth Club of California and the World Affairs Council.
