What’s accountability worth in 2020? We need your help to keep this essential service available to all.
As we make our way into a new decade filled with uncertainty, our goals at Mississippi Today remain the same: to make sure the news that matters most stays free and accessible to all Mississippians.
At a time when most newsrooms are cutting staff, this is a daunting task. That’s why we’re calling on everyone in the Mississippi who values this type of work to help fund it. Do you value transparency? Access to information? Freedom of the press?
If you do, will you do your part and invest in Mississippi Today?
Our spring membership campaign runs through May 31. Please give generously today.
