News Literacy Project to be featured on’s homepage on April 11


On April 11, the News Literacy Project will be featured on AOL’s homepage as part of its “cause module” program.

AOL sets aside space on its homepage daily for a vetted charity or nonprofit that offers a message with national appeal.

The NLP cause module will expose the project’s mission to a large number of visitors to and enable them to make online donations. The cause module averages between 4,000 and 7,000 clicks a day, according to AOL.

The NLP cause module will run for 24 hours with the project’s logo, a donation link and a link to our web page.

Scripps Company), is focusing on trust in newsrooms and news coverage during National News Literacy Week.
