Special thanks to the systems thinkers and journalists across the country who helped us refine our systems journalism practice through a series of workshops in 2018 and 2019, including staff at The News & Observer, The Herald-Sun, Renaissance Journalism, City Bureau, Resolve Philadelphia, The Baltimore Sun, the Seattle Times, New Hampshire Public Radio, and WNYC. 
This work would not be possible without the generous support from our funders the Democracy Fund and the Knight Foundation.
