Mission Loc@l believes that by covering a neighborhood fairly and thoroughly, we can build community and a sustainable model for quality journalism. As part of that effort, we seek collaboration and experimentation that will serve the community we cover and journalism. In the Mission District that means being a bilingual site and using print, multimedia and video to deliver information that offers diverse residents a way to connect and stay informed.

The site launched in October 2008, opened an office in the Mission District in January and many of us are Mission residents. Our aim is to become a self-sustaining model for public private partnerships that involve journalism schools, private foundations and community supporters.

Our staff includes reporters from the UC Berkeley Graduate School of Journalism, San Francisco State, City College and the community. We also receive and welcome an array of other community contributors.All contributor content is reviewed for accuracy and edited by a Mission Loc@l editor before it is published.
