Meet Strake: The Local Citizen News App Where YOUR Voice is Heard.

A community news platform where individuals can share local stories, brainstorm with others about their findings, and work together to create real change.

KNOW THIS FIRST

In a World Divided, We Need Community.

How can we spread the news of what we as individuals and communities are facing?

How can we adapt to global, economic, climate and social changes?

How can we transition into always being tech ready?

How can we live a work/life balance, still be able to retire and provide to the next generation?

How can we lead as humans in an era of AI?

Our voices aren’t heard.

We’ve become out of touch and disconnected from our communities.

We feel like the world is outside of our control.

Taking Local Citizen Journalism a Few Steps Ahead.

Join Strake: The local news app where you can be a citizen journalist, benefit your
