Journalism Trust Initiative to Host Virtual Event on June 15

Join the Journalism Trust Initiative (JTI) on June 15 to discuss a new project which aims to put Colorado newsrooms on the forefront of local news innovation.

is an international effort to identify news sources that adhere to professional, industry standards for independent journalism reporting and transparency in a way that is more clearly distinguishable — by humans and by algorithms — as separate and apart from opaque or partisan news sources, community-created content, and other types of information.

This summer, Colorado will become the first state in the nation to pilot the JTI on a statewide scale — starting with a pilot cohort of up to 12 local newsrooms that will receive technical support to complete the JTI self-assessment and strengthen or develop editorial guidelines that help build community trust. JTI is a project of Reporters Without Borders, which works for journalistic freedom, independence and pluralism all over the world.

The Journalism Trust Initiative: Colorado is presented in partnership with the Colorado News Collaborative, the Colorado Press Association and Colorado Media Project; JTI has hired local news and higher education leader Beth Potter to provide hands-on assistance to Colorado newsrooms in the pilot cohort and others over the year to come.
