We’re off for the summer — see you in September!

on May 13, 2016

Richmond Confidential is a project of the UC Berkeley Graduate School of Journalism, and now that it’s summer, our students are on break to work internships at other publications. We’ll be back to train a new class of student reporters in early September. If you like what we do at Richmond Confidential, please consider donating to our Hyperlocal News Fund. You can learn more about us here.

If you’ve found us over the summer, here are a few highlights from the coverage done by the 2015-16 Richmond Confidential news crew:
