Articles by Sarah Alvarez

Sarah Alvarez is lead reporter and founder of Outlier Media, a news and information service for low-income Detroiters.
“We can no longer pull our punches when it comes to what we allow ourselves to dream and demand for our work and our world.”
“We believe for local news to have a future, it has to be built for people when they truly need information before it is built for people when they are just curious.”
“One of the things that holds many of us back is that we’re beholden to the news more than we’re beholden to our communities.”
“I’m trying to be honest about what really matters about what we do as journalists and stop caring about the rest.”
