Supporting Local Journalism Through Zócalo Public Square


Supporting Local and Independent Journalism Through Zócalo Public Square

GRoW is partnering with the Arizona State University media enterprise, whose mission is to "connect people to ideas and to each other by examining essential questions in an accessible, broad-minded, and democratic spirit." 

Independent journalism is at the heart of a free and fair democracy, and Zócalo pursues that goal through its daily collection of essays, interviews and dispatches that is syndicated to 290 media outlets worldwide. "Our work to create a true public square—where all feel welcome and where new ideas are accessible to everyone—has never felt so necessary," says Zócalo's executive director Moira Shourie. "Our audience is growing rapidly and Zócalo's team reflects the audience we serve."  

GRoW will fund a major upgrade to Zócalo's digital footprint that will increase engagement with its content. "As Zócalo continues to grow its internal capacity while creating important partnerships with local and national institutions, it was incumbent on us as a funder to support its journalistic endeavors and help upgrade its digital presence," says GRoW founder Gregory Annenberg Weingarten. "We are delighted to work with the Zócalo team so that we can all benefit from these important conversations."
