Getting closer to the truth
We now live in a world where it gets harder to distinguish fact from fiction and where technology has been used as a weapon against truth and democracy.
Where to look for stories that matter? How to rise above the noise and find communities engaged in real work for social change?
We have not found all the answers, but when we started Rappler PLUS at the end of 2018, we saw the potential of bringing critical thought and action together.
We at Rappler believe that we shouldn’t just be aware of stories, we must also act on them.
Rappler PLUS was built on the pillars of truth, courage, and community – pillars that allow quality and uncompromised journalism flourish and connect even the most diverse of groups.
In the months that followed, the PLUS community went just beyond stories. We collaborated with each other and shared ideas on how to make journalism and society better.
Today, we continue to grow. More and more are choosing to join the Rappler PLUS journey — whether in our effort to shine the light on key issues, or deepen understanding of our complex problems, or push for advocacies through collaboration.
We have grown together and as Rappler CEO and executive editor Maria Ressa has said, “Rappler PLUS is a way for us to tap you and to learn from you.”
In one of our events, we asked our founding members what joining PLUS meant to them. Here are some of their answers:
