Fostering Media Connections is a nonprofit news organization that uses a mix of investigative, accountability and solution-oriented journalism to drive reform within the systems that serve vulnerable children, youth and their families.
Beyond producing stories, FMC employs an aggressive dissemination strategy to see its stories re-published in other media outlets. In Fiscal Year 17-18, FMC-produced stories were picked up 753 times, a 50.2 percent increase from the previous year. In 18-19 FMC-produced stories were picked up more than 900 times. Pickup from other outlets expands the impact these stories can have to generate public and political will for reforms benefitting vulnerable children, youth and families.
