The Arizona Mirror strives to tell untold stories, amplify the voices of Arizonans whose stories are unheard, shine a light on the relationships between people, power and policy, and hold public officials to account. We view news as a vital community service, and are supported by the generosity of those who believe an informed Arizona is a better Arizona.

Colorado Newsline provides fair and accurate reporting on politics, policy and other stories of interest to Coloradans. Newsline is based in Denver, and coverage of activities at the Capitol are central to its mission, but its reporters are devoted to providing reliable information about the environment, health care, education, the economy, the justice system, the functioning of state government, and other topics that concern readers in all parts of the state, from Lamar to Dinosaur, from Durango to Sterling.

Reporters in many now-shrunken capital bureaus have to spend most of their time these days chasing around after more and more outrageous political behavior, and too many don’t have time to lift up emerging innovative ideas or report on the people who are trying to help solve problems and shift policy for a more compassionate world. The Florida Phoenix does those stories.

The Georgia Recorder brings a fresh perspective to coverage of the state’s biggest issues and the communities we care about. Most traditional news organizations now lack the resources to do much more than chase the political outrage of the day, so proposals to shape Georgia’s approach to health care, public schools, community development and other essential ingredients for a good quality-of-life don’t receive the attention they warrant. The Georgia Recorder aims to remedy that.

The Iowa Capital Dispatch combines state government coverage with relentless investigative journalism, deep dives into the consequences of policy, political insight, and principled commentary. We deeply believe in sharing the stories of people outside the halls of power, connecting the actions of state leaders to their impacts on Iowans.

Kansas Reflector works to amplify voices of people whose lives are affected by public policies but who might typically be left out of public debate. The Reflector seeks to increase Kansans’ awareness of how decisions made by elected representatives and other public servants affect our day-to-day lives.

Notwithstanding the way political reporting is often presented, we see politics as neither sport nor entertainment. There are quality-of-life consequences – even life-and-death consequences – to environmental permitting decisions, to health care policy, to income- and sales-tax rates, to budgetary cuts and to economic development plans. For those reasons, the Illuminator does not cover politics in a way that centers politicians, their squabbles with one another or their career ambitions. Instead, we center Louisianians from Ouachita to Calcasieu, from Plaquemines to Caddo who must live with the decisions their political leaders make.

Years ago, healthy competition for news out of Annapolis and across the state produced robust coverage. But the media landscape has changed. Papers have closed. Suburban bureaus have shut down. Reporting staffs have shrunk. Coverage of state and local news has all but disappeared. Maryland Matters seeks to fill the void with original reporting and commentary.

The Michigan Advance features in-depth stories, blog posts and social media updates, as well as top-notch progressive commentary. We wholeheartedly believe that journalists have the biggest impact by reporting close to home, explaining what’s happening in our state and communities — and why. Michigan has hundreds fewer reporters than just a couple decades ago. The result is too many stories falling through the cracks.
