Republish Our Work!

We love sharing solutions that lead to liberation in cities across the globe. Next City allows mission-aligned nonprofit news outlets to reprint our original content for free with permission. Mission-aligned organizations believe in Next City’s core values:

  • Justice: We hold ourselves accountable for our role in advancing a fully equitable democracy that works to overturn systems of oppression and lead to liberation.

  • Honesty: We acknowledge hard truths and always uphold journalistic principles of transparency, fairness and accuracy. 

  • Openness: We value imagination that finds different and better solutions to problems, grounded within affected communities.

  • Humanity: We recognize the voices and experiences of marginalized communities by centering their dignity in how we work, what stories we tell, who we publish.

  • Connection: We believe collaboration is a superpower that inspires and fuels change, and we offer space for new ideas to flourish and diverse partners to connect with each other.

We’re big fans of these outlets who’ve republished our work —Grist, The TyeeReasons to Be Cheerful — and we’d love to add you to the mix!
