Local journalism worth reading from 2023

by | Dec 26, 2023 | Bocaítos, Courts | 0 comments

At The New York Times, the Morning newsletter featured examples of local journalism they considered worth reading. Pasquines was among the outlets they listed, specifically for our “Context of citizenship” article, which dove into the intricacies of citizenship in the US unincorporated territories of Puerto Rico, Guam, the US Virgin Islands, American Samoa, and the Northern Mariana Islands. In their words:

The Morning newsletterasked editorsat dozens of local news publications — both for-profit and nonprofit — around the country to tell us about some of their best 2023 work. Below you’ll find their stories.

Pasquines, U.S. territories: What it means to be a citizen of America’s unincorporated territories

This feature is particularly meaningful as we close out 2023, our tenth year of publication, and as we participate in the NewsMatch campaign, which means that until December 31, 2023, all donations by individuals up to $1,000 have triple the impact due to a double match. These matches are thanks to the generosity of the Knight Foundation and the Heising-Simons Foundation. Your support will help us continue to publish the context of islands in the form of local journalism from the US territories worth reading in 2024.
