Molly de Aguiar on a key goal of plans like Press Forward
This was an excellent column. And thank you Molly for shining a light on local needs and how we can support more local funders to galvanize their support in underserved communities.
This is a great dialogue. Molly is (as always) spot on, particularly about the dynamic between local and national funders regarding the funding of locally pertinent topics. She (and you) are right to be concerned about how there is no easy answer to the question of funding into news deserts where there are corresponding funding deserts - and the role of humility in this conversation. Thank you for this. (And I'm a big fan of this format for SRD.)
Very valuable dialogue. Especially her comment about scaling up! Not always the answer.
Helpful -- and thanks, Molly, for all you're doing.
Thanks for holding and sharing this valuable dialogue.
