“Nonprofit, mission-driven journalism is essential to Mississippi because it puts the information needs of our readers at the forefront of all that we do. Everyday we think through the reporting and resources people need most in order to hold their leaders accountable, make decisions that effect their communities and better engage in civic life. Mississippians have a right to know what their leaders are up to and we have a responsibility to report on it.”
