The Devil Strip is a community-owned local news co-op whose purpose is helping more residents fall in love with Akron, Ohio, and then help them live like it, which is as much about celebrating the people who make this place unique as it is exploring the challenges that hold us back. We’re here to tell the whole story of Akron. That’s why we’re committed to shining a light on local arts, music, entrepreneurship and community leadership while we also take a solutions-minded approach to the complex problems that make life harder for our neighbors. It’ll all part of our mission to connect Akronites to one another, to our city and to a greater sense of shared purpose. We’re accountable to the people of Akron because we’re cooperatively owned by the people of Akron.
