For the people.
With the people.
Our nonprofit journalism amplifies voices in disinvested Dallas neighborhoods and explores solutions to our city’s systemic inequities.
Award-winning journalist Keri Mitchell, who spent 15 years dedicated to community and civic journalism at Dallas’ Advocate magazines, launched Dallas Free Press in early 2020 with the belief that all neighborhoods deserve reporting and storytelling that values their community and holds leaders accountable.
A nonprofit model allows for a return to journalism for its intended purpose — public service. The focus of Dallas Free Press is to enable community journalism efforts in Dallas news deserts, starting with South Dallas and West Dallas, and also to build a local journalism collaborative to tackle complex civic issues.
