California Local produces community journalism for the digital age by creating a virtual world where people can discover more about their towns, cities and fellow citizens. Reliable news, community information, positive conversation—and voices of the community rarely heard elsewhere.
We are a forum for constructive dialog about both the physical places where our members and visitors live, and the communities of interest they create online. Our proprietary platform, NewsOS (patent-pending), creates a space optimized for civil discourse, with participation via discussions, information-sharing and surveys in place of unmoderated comments, which tend to generate more heat than light.
On California Local, our members can connect with their elected representatives, as well as local advocacy groups, charitable organizations and service clubs. Our directories provide points of contact along with relevant news and announcements. Without leaving California Local, visitors and members can join, donate to, or volunteer with hundreds of groups. We work to enable community engagement and raise community pride. Join the Conversation.
Communities of Interest.
These days, folks also gather online around the topics and the issues they are passionate about.
Because California Local tags its content with relevant topics, our site helps members and visitors find information about the issues they care about and connect them with like-minded people and groups.
