Round Earth Media is reporting from places that are neglected or need better reporting.

The news outlets the world depends on rely on Round Earth Media to report the stories that no one else is telling. The teams at Round Earth seek out stories that illuminate the many ways in which people in the United States — recent immigrants and long-time residents alike — are connected to people around the world. We also like to tell positive stories about the richness of world cultures and the ways in which people are working to solve problems and expand opportunity around the globe.  REM reporters go further and deeper into these stories than anyone else.
