At COURIER, we empower individuals and communities through local reporting that helps people understand and affect the issues impacting their lives. We examine national stories through a local lens, and elevate local news that’s relevant to a broader audience.
We believe that by investing in the work of local journalists across the country we can positively impact civic participation and build a healthier democracy from the ground up. Through original reporting and human-focused storytelling, we highlight the issues and forces that shape our lives while calling attention to the impacts of policy-making and political action at the local level.
Whether we’re following the ripple effect of decisions in Washington on families and communities across the country or underscoring the innovations and ideas emerging at the state, city, and county level, COURIER amplifies the voices and stories of those building a nation that works for all of us—and we hold accountable those who threaten it.

We are investing in local journalism and storytelling that is thoughtful, informative, and relevant.
