We The People Media

We The People Media was formed as a not-for-profit organization in late 1999 by 10 prominent journalists, scholars, community and business leaders who wanted to ensure the survival of Residents’ Journal and the Urban Youth International Journalism Program.

In June 1999, shortly after the takeover of the CHA by city officials, the new administration terminated CHA’s prior agreement with Residents’ Journal and instructed the staff to either integrate the publication into the agency’s public relations strategy or expedite the transition to publication by an independent not-for-profit organization. The Residents’ Journal staff opted to separate from CHA.

After months of fundraising and other preparation, We The People Media assumed responsibility for Residents’ Journal and the Urban Youth International Journalism Program in August 2000.

We The People’s guidance has enabled the Urban Youth International Journalism Program to hire new staff and redesign its Journalism 101 curriculum to enhance training for young people throughout the city’s low-income communities.
