  • Raine Kuch

    Community Documenter/Journalist

    I think journalism best serves the community when it amplifies voices that aren’t often represented in mainstream media. When it focuses on solutions, not just on the problems themselves. I think journalism should keep important conversations going in our community, like those surrounding racial justice, and I think that the community should play an active role in crafting the news media they see.
