THE CITY

The Fuller Project and THE CITY, a nonprofit newsroom dedicated to hard-hitting journalism that serves the people of New York City, are partnering to report on the often unheard stories of women across all five boroughs. Together we will cover maternal health, caregiving, education, housing and more through the cross-cutting issues that affect women in New York.

The Fuller Project makes an indispensable contribution to ensuring that issues affecting women get more of the attention they so urgently need, and that women’s experiences and voices are more consistently centered. We are thrilled to have Jessica Washington working with our team of reporters and editors to bring that perspective to journalism that addresses the compound inequities faced by women in New York. This kind of deep partnership between newsrooms with shared values and complementary expertise will be crucial if we are to build resilient local news infrastructure that delivers impact, and fosters a better civic conversation.” – Nic Dawes, Executive Director, THE CITY
