In the fall of 2013 The Citizens Campaign hosted a series of citizen journalism conferences to empower people impacted by Superstorm Sandy with the tools and skills to report on the recovery and how our towns are preparing for future storms. Citizen journalists play a valuable role in making sure these issues stay front and center in the public. We have taken the highlights from these conferences and compiled a handbook, Keeping the Focus Where It Belongs.

In 2010, Jesse McCaskill, submitted a proposal to the Paterson City Council to adopt The Citizens Campaign Best Price Insurance model law.

The City Council & Mayor embraced his proposal, making Paterson the first city to adopt the Best Price Insurance Law.
