Fresnoland is a nonprofit news organization dedicated to making policy public. We are proud to make all of our stories free for all to read and republish. 

We are grateful to our initial publishing partner, The Fresno Bee, for originally distributing all of our reporting through The Fresnoland Lab at the Fresno Bee.

Our original reporting and notes from the Documenters are available to be republished under a Creative Commons license, under certain conditions, listed below.

To republish any story, simply click the “Republish this Story” button in the sidebar.

Our Terms 

  1. Stories must credit Fresnoland and/or the Fresno Documenters. This includes byline credit (for example, “Cassandra Garibay, Fresnoland”) and a line at the top of the story that reads, “This story was originally published by Fresnoland, a nonprofit news organization,” where “Fresnoland” is hyperlinked to the version of the story.
  2. Stories must retain original language. You may not edit our content, except for minor updates to time and location references or editorial style. You may also make minor revisions for style or headline size, and you may trim stories for space. You must also retain all original hyperlinks, including links to Fresnoland newsletters, events and any other calls-to-action.
  3. Photographs and illustrations may not be republished without additional permission. If you would like to republish any story elements besides text and links, please contact to inquire about media rights.

  7. Do not ask for donations on behalf of Fresnoland or imply that donations or subscriptions to your organization support Fresnoland.
  8. Do not sell or syndicate our content to third parties. This includes publishing or syndicating our work on platforms such as Apple News or AOL, or selling subscriptions to your organization using our content.
  9. Do not place our stories behind a hard paywall. Fresnoland wants to make sure our stories are free for all to read.
  10. Do not scrape our website or use our stories to populate websites designed to improve search rankings or gain revenue from network-based advertisements. Your website must also include prominent links to your about page and contact information.
