Working For Your Community

At the intersection of local news and community engagement

Since the rise of social media, community engagement is now happening more online than offline. Instinctively, if we need a cup of sugar, we'll map a grocery on Google rather asking our neighbors.

How can technology leverage local journalism to improve how residents are informed and engage with each other? How will this be able to strengthen trust in communities? At Bloom, we ask these types of questions to learn how our platform can reach and engage communities in reality.
