About

North Omaha Information Support Everyone is a community-led news organization developed to address the information gap within North Omaha. NOISE is a multimedia platform prioritizing web and social media while supporting coverage with radio, print, SMS alerts, and events to make news more accessible.

Drawing from current events, direct feedback from our neighbors, and history, we work to provide content relevant to people's everyday lives in an effort to recapture and inform the narrative of North Omaha.

We recognize that information is abundant but not always representative or as nuanced as the people at the center of the story. Our team is comprised of residents of North Omaha, young people of color, and allies that wish to serve and inform the greater community. Most of our team members do not have formal journalism experience but all demonstrate a great ability to connect, discuss, and tell stories.

Since our inception in April 2018, in response to an information ecosystem assessment conducted by the Listening Post Collective, we have engaged thousands of people from across the Omaha metro with our information sharing. Through local gatherings, we have been able to bring public officials and community members together for dynamic discussions. 

NOISE works to break the mold of news distribution through creative experimentation in our choice of mediums like SMS text alerts, full-color zines featuring local art, a comprehensive social media presence.

NOISE has three focus areas for news coverage: Civics, Community, and Culture.

Civic news is at our core because we recognize that there is no participatory democracy unless the citizenry is informed of their rights, the actions of elected officials take in propagating arrangements, and the impact of policy. Our in-depth coverage of municipal, state, and federal government works to put civics back in the hands of the people.
