Mission Statement

The Texas Tribune is the only member-supported, digitally focused, nonpartisan news organization that informs and engages with Texans about public policy, politics, government and statewide issues. We cover education, energy and the environment, government and politics, health and human services, criminal justice, race and immigration, transportation and investigative reporting.

This is an important time for the kind of fact-based, nonpartisan journalism we produce at the Tribune - our reporting, data and public events provide greater awareness on issues in every major public policy area - public and higher education, immigration, transportation, health care, infrastructure and the like.

During the 85th session of the Texas Legislature and beyond, our watchdog reporting helps contextualize how policy decisions made by elected officials affect the lives of everyday Texans.

With your help, we'll do an even better job of connecting the dots. The work we produce is free to consume, but not to create. We make it happen, but you make it possible. Give generously today. Thank you!

Impact Statement

Our goal has been to raise the level of access to information on the issues affecting all Texans. We believe that education is the first step toward greater civic engagement. Big policy and political problems can't be solved if Texans don't know about them. Every Tribune story and event is executed with the goal to help Texans engage with decision makers and with each other to understand important political and public policy matters.
