Beacon: Crowdfunding Journalism
Beacon is a crowdfunding and publishing platform for journalists. The app directly connects ordinary citizens with professional reporters, and empowers readers to decide which stories get told. One notable example is #EmergingUS, a recently-launched campaign being matched dollar for dollar by Beacon that is devoted to examining the relationship between immigration and American identity, as well as race and culture in national discourse.
