General Assignment & Equity Reporter
SoCoNews is seeking a bilingual, multicultural journalist to cover issues relating to social justice, equity and inclusion in Sonoma County, California. One of the chief initiatives of the Sonoma County Local News Initiative, a nonprofit that is taking over ownership of SoCoNews, is to expand our coverage of under-reported stories. Specifically, we’re looking for a reporter who’s ready to dive in and help define our social justice, multicultural and accountability news coverage. Our ideal candidate possesses news gathering and storytelling skills and is community-minded.  Experience reporting on issues relating to equity, as well as multimedia reporting experience, is a plus. This reporting beat will include coverage of north and west Sonoma County’s Latino communities, other communities of color, Indigenous people, LGBTQ+ community, youth and marginalized groups.
