Oakland Local is a nonpartisan, nonprofit media and capacity-building organization that promotes civic engagement and discourse on local issues that matter. We are both a go-to media resource for diverse voices in the East Bay of California and a capacity-building tool to help low-income and under-served communities make their voices heard online through the hands-on media training we provide. We are particularly focused on serving Oakland’s low-income communities of color. Our vision is to both bridge the digital divide and support local community economic development through media, at the same time that we build a vibrant news hub for Northern California’s East Bay.
Currently our site has over 70,000 visitors a month and serves over 160,000 page views, making us the most-visited non-profit independent news site about the East Bay. We have over 5,000 Facebook fans, and over 3,000 Twitter followers.
As a mission-driven news non-profit, we partner with 32 different local community organizations and 15 news and distribution partners to create, publish, and distribute content.
