Journalism needs everyone

Our Mission

Coral brings journalists and the communities they serve closer together through open-source tools and strategies. Our goals: To increase public trust in journalism To improve the diversity of voices and experiences in reporting To make journalism stronger by making it more relevant to people's lives To create safer, more productive online dialog Because journalism needs everyone. We are a project of Vox Media, Inc. We were initially founded as a collaboration with the Mozilla Foundation, the New York Times and the Washington Post, with a grant from the Knight Foundation. We moved to Vox Media in 2019. And the name? Coral's intricate reef systems protect shorelines and give cover for organisms to connect and evolve. Like coral, we create the structures that let communities thrive.

"Coral's approach is highly collaborative and they are excellent at listening to the needs of their partners."
