Richmond Confidential is an online news service produced by the Graduate School of Journalism at UC Berkeley for, and about, the people of Richmond, California. Our goal is to produce professional and engaging journalism that is useful for the citizens of this city. With 15 full time reporters, we’ll be covering education, development, politics, culture, crime—and anything that happens that people need to know about. We can’t do this alone. We need you, the users of this site, to talk with us, make suggestions, point us in the direction of the truth, help us report stories of value. How can you do that? Comment on our stories, correct us when we make a mistake, help us understand the community you live in. In our way of thinking, the best journalism is a conversation in which we all take part.
