Ocean State Stories is a media outlet from Salve Regina University’s Pell Center serving all of Rhode Island and the many diverse communities that comprise our state. Publishing weekly at the outset, we bring journalism on issues of importance to our statewide audiences – and all of our original content is published in both English and Spanish. We are non-profit, non-partisan, and free.
Our focus is journalism about issues that often are neglected or under-reported — stories that explore healthcare, education, public policy, socioeconomic and racial disparities and injustices, domestic violence, food and housing insecurities, the environment, agriculture, ageism, suicide prevention, mental health, veterans affairs, and developmental and intellectual disabilities, among others. They are told with data, expert input, and, importantly, the personal experiences of Rhode Islanders.
Correspondence Address: Ocean State Stories, Salve Regina University, 100 Ochre Point Avenue, Newport, Rhode Island 02840. Our offices are located at the Pell Center, Young Building, 518 Bellevue Avenue, Newport, Rhode Island.
