Planet Detroit aims to produce quality climate, equity, health and environment journalism in the public interest that centers grassroots voices, holds power accountable, spotlights solutions + serves the community. That means we love when other outlets share our work.
Stories that are eligible for republishing contain this republishing widget.
If you’re interested in republishing this story online or in print, we just have a few requirements:
For the byline, we prefer Author Name, Planet Detroit. At the top of our stories, if on the web, please include this text and link: “Planet Detroit originally published this story [link to original story]. Sign up for Planet Detroit's weekly newsletter here.”
Check the image requirements.
Photos sourced from free/creative commons image sources in our pieces can be republished. Outside of this, you can’t republish photographs or illustrations without written permission from the photographer.
Don’t change anything significant.
You can change the headline and/or subheading, but articles must be republished in their entirety. It’s ok to change references to time (“yesterday” to “today”) or location (“Southwest Detroit” to “here”). If you really think changing the story with additional localized copy would help, please contact us directly and we can discuss the change. We must approve the change before it goes live.
Don’t sell our stories.
We also ask that you don’t sell ads specifically meant to be placed in our stories. If you already have ads populating on your site, that’s completely fine.
Keep in contact.
Let us know if you republish our content! As a nonprofit news site, tracking the impact of our reporting and analysis is crucial. We’d love to hear more about how the work was useful to you and your outlet. And on the off chance that we ask you to remove the story from your site or apply a correction, please do so.
Use best practices for sharing.
If you do share the story on your social media accounts, we’d love it if you tagged Planet Detroit's accounts:
