We are America's Newspapers

The new board of directors gathered for the first time in Asheville, N.C., in August for a planning meeting.

Who we are

We’re more than a new look and new logo. America’s Newspapers has a new outlook on our industry and a renewed commitment to our members.  We are unified in our mission, firm in our values and committed in our vision to champion newspapers and all they bring to the communities they serve. We are your voice – for support, for advocacy, for education, for connection. And we know that the only way to be stronger is to speak louder as one voice, united for change.

 

We offer:

 

  • A voice to advocate with passion, energy and drive on behalf of America’s newspapers.
  • A network for education, support, collaboration and connection.
  • Education on the latest trends, innovations and changes in the industry.
  • An alliance of local newspaper establishments where members can seek advice, share best practices and tackle challenges.
  • Advocacy and support of First Amendment rights and the protection of the free press.

 

America’s Newspapers will continue the work of Inland and SNPA in providing research, education and practical information all aimed at optimizing newspapers’ business operations, deepening their community engagement and enhancing the quality of their journalism. America’s Newspapers will continue to reflect the culture of collegiality and sharing that characterized its predecessors.

 

 

The Newspaper Promise

We are America's Newspapers.
We are woven into the rich tapestry of this nation ...
Telling the stories of its people, its struggles and its triumphs.
Reporting on the news that matters, close to home ...
Equipping citizens with the relevant facts.
And protecting families through honest journalism.

We are the stewards of this industry.
Committed to fairness, integrity and freedom.
Upholding the First Amendment and protecting the right to a free press.

We do it because we believe that news matters.
We believe that newspapers matter.
And we believe that we have been called to speak on their behalf.

Wherever news happens ...
Wherever life happens ...
We are here.
To document meaningful histories.
To share compelling stories.
To connect a network of allies.
And to inform progress, as it happens.

We are uncompromising in our pursuit ...
Of knowledge.
Of understanding.
Of service.
Because knowledge is power.
These are the tools that can shape our world ...
And change it for the better.

We are society's mirror, truthfully reflecting the human experience.
The births. The deaths.
The losses. The victories.
The small moments that drive us ...
And the big moments that define us.

We remain firm in our mission.
Faithful to our own.
Resolutely fulfilling our duty to the people, the industry and our members.

We are ardent supporters.
Resolute advocates.
And, passionate believers in the power of newspapers.

And, we speak on your behalf.

Separate, we are many voices.  Some too small to be heard.

Together, we are one.  One voice. One message. One goal.
Louder. Stronger. Bolder.

We are the voices of America's newspapers.
Join your voice with ours ...
And be heard.
