Overview: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.
The Public Press provides context-rich, nonpartisan journalism that fills the void of hard-hitting accountability reporting left by the downsizing of the commercial press over the last decade. More than 70 professional freelance journalists and volunteers write, edit and distribute the news, and use social media to encourage conversation among under-served communities.
We publish daily online and quarterly in our advertising-free broadsheet newspaper for sale at more than 50 local retail locations. We also distribute copies free to senior, community and public health centers.
