At The Land, we prioritize community participation throughout our reporting process.
Newsgathering – We run surveys and send out questions to better understand what you care about. This way, you can help guide our coverage to cater to your information needs.
Reporting – We host regular virtual office hours events and meetings. You can drop in at any point to ask questions or chat about the stories we’re working on.
Listening sessions – We attend community events to gather feedback from people about what issues are most important to them. We use this grassroots input to inform our reporting.
Here’s how you can get in touch with us:
TEXT + EMAIL
Get free news by text sent directly to your phone. You can also send questions and tips directly to our reporters’ phones, and have conversations with us about issues that matter to you and what you’d like to see us cover.
TEXT (216) 606-8646 to sign up
We’ll text out updates on our stories a few times per week, ask questions about pressing issues and report back on interesting questions and responses we received.
You can message questions and tips to us on social media too, or follow us to keep up with what we’re covering. We post excepts, quotes and interesting facts from our stories every day.
STREAMS + SURVEYS
We host regular virtual office hours and events. You can drop into the streams at any time to chat directly with our reporters, ask questions about our coverage and just talk about topics you care about.
We also constantly run surveys to gauge our readers’ interests in current events and hot topics.
Our community impact survey will stay up constantly so you can tell us how we’re doing and how we can improve.
Given the upcoming elections in Cleveland, we’ve also launched an elections survey.
