Visu.News publishes original news content from across the United States and assists other sites/news orgs in either hiring more photo/video people for assignments or finding funding for costs related to existing assignments. Visu.News then makes our content available to their platforms – much like Propublica does when it works with larger news organizations.
We’ll be applying for grants also looking to groups like unions or environmental orgs for support. We’ll also have a subscription base and a large store of products, like signed books from contributors and t-shirts.
Some of our current contributors:
Greg Palast // GregPalast.com, The Best Democracy Money Can Buy
Robin Marty // writer for Cosmopolitan.com, Rewire, Dame
Zach D Roberts // zdroberts.com, Desmogblog, NationofChange, Truthout

I’m a photojournalist based in Upstate New York. For the past 10 years I’ve been on the trail covering social movements, investigating election theft and corporate crime – usually with 2 Nikons in tow. I’ve been to Ferguson, Euromaidan, OWS and at about a dozen different Trump rallies. Oh and at the conventions and at the inaugural. I was beaten and trampled at Occupy, arrested there too. Had guns pointed at me in Ferguson and Charlottesville and was fed the best borscht on the planet by Ukrainians in Kiev.
