Multilingual hyperlocal sets new standards of participation

without comments

A new twist on community-focused media comes with the launch of
the Alhambra Source, a multilingual hyperlocal east of Los Angeles.

The founders of the Alhambra Source hope that publishing in English, Chinese and Spanish will increase civil participation in the Californian town, which has a big Asian and Latin American population. The project, which is funded by a grant of $10 million, is run collaboratively by professional journalists, students and local residents.
