ChicagoTalks has been online since 2006 as a nonprofit, local news source for Chicago and its many neighborhoods. Our stories come from all corners of the city; our reporters are young journalists learning to cover their communities and community people with a story to tell. Ars Technica described ChicagoTalks as: "A nuts-and-bolts neighborhood information hub that keeps its digital ear to the ground on everything from housing foreclosures to bike lanes. Fueled by citizen journalism, the site is constantly receiving and regurgitating the latest information about crime control, school budgets, and library hours."

Focus Areas: Community Issues, Culture, Education, Government, Social Issues

INN Projects: Education
