On the new website, you can subscribe to our newsletter for updates. You can follow the RSS feeds. You can find stories of your interest with better categories and tags. Also, it’s easier for you to follow popular and recent articles.
5. Our authors deserve your attention.
Our reporters put a lot of effort into their work. They run across the city. They crack data. The carry their cameras to examine vital issues and events. We want to make sure we create a space where they are heard, criticized, commented on/about, and if warranted, applauded.
6. We want Google to find us better. More accurately, we want PEOPLE WHO CARE to find us.
We deliver quality reporting on juvenile justice and youth policies. We want Google and other search engines to be messengers our product on your end. With the new WordPress theme, we are able to optimize our search engine results.
