A nonprofit news site and producer of short videos, CivicStory is focused on civics, sustainability, and creative growth in New Jersey cities and beyond. Research interests include analyzing language used by news media and the impact it has on citizen engagement and civic capacity. Additionally, CivicStory wants to investigate ways that New Jersey's news eco-system (civic info system) could function as, among other things, a sustainability reporting hub that impacts news narratives and elevates the urgency of conservation and living sustainably.
