Overview
SJN’s mission is to legitimize and integrate into standard journalistic practice the rigorous coverage of responses to social problems — with a focus on increasing awareness and understanding of how creative approaches are achieving results. This work addresses a critical blind spot in journalism: Reporters cover the world’s problems, but they regularly overlook or undervalue helpful or promising responses to those problems, even when they show evidence of effectiveness. As a result, people know far more about what’s wrong with society than what’s being done to improve it.
