The Solutions Journalism Resource Page - Today, I'm going to change the World..

David and Sarika are just two members of the team at SJ 
On reading a post about activism journalism at Nieman, I explored every link.

Note on the title of this post: I've used, Today I'm going to Change the World as opposed to We're going to change the World for a reason. It's written from the journalists point of view.
