Signal Cleveland’s Community Reporter Najee Hall explains our work in Cleveland’s Central neighborhood. Watch the video above to catch a glimpse of Najee at a recent hot meal event hosted by the Friendly Inn in Central.

Signal Cleveland is working on a special project — Community focus: Central. We started by listening to residents in the Central neighborhood and now are building a list of the stories and issues they want us to write about.

Leading this work are our community reporter Najee Hall and a dynamic listening team including Cleveland Documenters Kellie Morris, LaQueta Worley, Marvetta Rutherford and Lila Parker. Look for them at community events and gathering spaces around the Central neighborhood.

We believe residents should be at the center of local news and information so that we can build a better and more sustainable future for our communities.

Let’s talk. We want to hear from people of every age, race, income, ability and political viewpoint. Connect with us — online, in person or via text!
