“The news we consume each day affects us all deeply. For too many years journalism has focused primarily on exposing what is broken – creating a narrative that has led to a lack of agency and a sense of despair. The practice of solutions journalism in newsrooms around the country can and has radically changed – not only the way that the news makes readers feel – but also creates a more truthful account of how communities are tackling our most difficult social issues. “
Julia Power Burns has had a career focused over the last close to 20 years on the financial and operational management of media organizations; both large and small, for profit and non-profit.
Through a fortuitous meeting with David Bornstein and Courtney Martin in the fall of 2012, she went on to become one of founding employees of the Solutions Journalism Network — joining the organization at its inception in early 2013 as Chief Financial Officer. In January of 2018, she also became General Manager. Since then she has worked together with her colleagues to build a financial and administrative infrastructure; enabling SJN’s growth from the original 4 to approximately 30 employees today. Along the way, she has witnessed the organization’s growth in impact, too. SJN now has over 200 newsrooms and 3,000 journalists in its network all producing solutions journalism – credible, evidence based reporting about what’s working in our communities today.
