Manila Today is an independent online publication on news, views and features from the perspective of the people of Metro Manila. Manila Today envisions to expand the horizons of online and social media use into public knowledge and discourse with the goal of translating awareness into public criticism and action.
Manila Today has a pool of editors that oversee daily publishing activities. As a community journalism publication, writers of Manila Today come from basic sectors of youth and students, women, urban poor and workers trained in various news writing workshops and they write about the stories most important to their own sectors and communities. In-house photojournalists do the news and documentary photography of events relevant to the common people. A pool of contributors across various sections has also helped diversify the contents of the publication.
