Become a Citizen Journalist!

UMA provides training and support to local citizens who are interested in covering topics and issues in their own neighborhoods through writing and reporting. Citizens are trained to upload their stories to–where the stories will be digitally published.

We are a non-profit organization that receives primary funding through contracts negotiated between our current cable providers and the City of Malden, MA.
