If one mayor represented all of Alameda and Contra Costa counties, that person's 2.5 million constituents would live in the country's fourth-largest city. And just as these East Bay counties are very different from the rest of the San Francisco Bay Area, the East Bay Express is a very different paper. From the international populations that make Oakland and Richmond so dynamic, to the ideological diversity that separates Berkeley from Walnut Creek, our readers are united by their love of a region that is second to nowhere in beauty, livability, intellectual firepower, and cosmopolitan charm.
Every week, the Express provides these well-educated world travelers the only medium dedicated exclusively to them. From our authoritative cover stories; to our in-depth local reporting, arts and dining coverage; to the area's most comprehensive weekly calendar; the East Bay Express has been this vibrant region's leading voice since 1978.
Mission Loc@l believes that by covering a neighborhood fairly and thoroughly, we can build community and a sustainable model for quality journalism.
As part of that effort, we seek collaboration and experimentation that will serve the community we cover and journalism. In the Mission District that means being a bilingual site and using print, multimedia and video to deliver information that offers diverse residents a way to connect and stay informed.
The site launched in October 2008, opened an office in the Mission District in January and many of us are Mission residents.
The project is part of an initiative in hyper-local coverage developed by UC Berkeley’s Graduate School of Journalism, and supported by the school, the Ford Foundation and other donors.
Our aim is to become a self-sustaining model for public private partnerships that involve journalism schools, private foundations and community supporters.
This summer’s staff includes five interns from UC Berkeley, one intern from SF State and a visiting scholar from Mexico. We also participate in collaborations to mentor young journalists.
The Scraper Bike Movement has been around for about 5-6 years and is now starting to get exposure worldwide. We recently put a video on Youtube.com and watched it touch people all over the country as well as the world. The video is at 2.6 million views and still going. Scraper Bikes has been featured in countless events such as, The Birth of The Cool Remix (Artistic Individualism), The Black, Red and Green: Living Word Festival (Green Society/ Spare the Air) and The International Bicycle Film Festival (Health/ Motor Skills). Along with countless interviews from NPR, to The Christian Science Monitor (Stop the violence) to Current TV; Scraper Bikes have been getting a lot of positive feedback from people around the world (Communities of Unity). We have set up a lot of events over the past few years to bring awareness of this grassroots movement (Free for All). Oakland is the birth place of the Scraper Bikes. We plan on creating a bicycle shop that focuses on customizing bicycles, bicycle repair skills, and youth mentoring services. We plan on creating a sustainable, positive, educational, and "Green" way of life in the inner city.
