NESAWG will be launching a Community News Project project in 2015, which aims to build the media outreach and story-telling capacity of our network participants. Many other organizations have learned to use the ever-evolving menu of new digital media tools, including Twitter, photo and video sharing and electronic action alerts, but struggle due to lack of staffing resources to create relevant content for these channels. To support these organizations, NESAWG's Community News Project will offer targeted food-system-related content, training and support to select organizations across the region during our 2015 pilot period.
