Supporting Independent Journalism
As of this week, Civil is live. You can now join the network by becoming a Civil member, create your own newsroom and vote on the broad scope of media being published through a community of 100+ independent journalists around the globe.
Civil is a community for independent journalism, and it’s run by you and the journalists you rely on. As a member, you can help support reporting where it’s needed most.Civil Blog [Source]
Owned by the Community
As a stakeholder of the CVL token, you actually own a piece of the entire CIVIL ecosystem. That authority allows you to vote on newsrooms you want to support and challenge those that you feel are reporting unethically. This fosters a new cooperative dynamic between news outlets and the audiences they cultivate. CIVIL is really a social experiment to decentralize the governance of media – a structure where news-creators are held accountable for the quality and intention of their reporting.
