A PODCAST ON CRIME, CORNER STORES AND GENTRIFICATIONDONATE
Eden Tesfay owned a store on the corner of Summit and Sixth street in Weinland Park for years. That store is now rubble. Cornering Stores is the story of Eden’s store and others like it that have been sued by the city for being “hubs of criminal activity,” an idea that goes to the heart of many changing neighborhoods.
Why are we nonprofit?
Matter is a publication of Grey Matter Media, a local, independent, nonprofit media startup.
Let’s be real: Local news coverage today lacks the resources, understanding and context needed to produce quality journalism. That means for cities like Columbus, locals are left without information about what’s happening in their own backyards.
That’s where Grey Matter Media comes in. We’re a small team of journalists, social workers, filmmakers and concerned citizens from this community who want to bring innovative, investigative news to central Ohio. And what’s more: We want to make it affordable. As a nonprofit, we will not be beholden to large advertisers, and we will never make you pay to access our content.
At Grey Matter Media, we go beyond the news to show the grey areas in any story. To learn more about Grey Matter Media, our editorial independence and donor transparency policies, or to pledge a donation, visit our site at greymattermedia.org.
