Executive director William E. Buzenberg said:
Craig Newmark is an iconic visionary who saw the community-empowerment potential of the Internet early on. It’s a great honor to have him on our board, where he can help the Center for Public Integrity in its own community-building efforts linked to in-depth investigative reporting and truth-telling.
The center does high-quality investigative reporting, vital to the future of a free country. Citizens need to stand up and be part of that.
