Invest in The 19th

Our journalism is powered by readers who believe in our mission…

… to empower women, women of color and the LGBTQ+ community with the information, community and tools they need to be equal participants in our democracy.

At a time when newsroom budgets across the United States are shrinking, The 19th is investing in serious reporting that reimagines politics and policy journalism to be more inclusive of and responsive to its audience. That means:

  • Having reporters anchored across the country, not just on the coasts
  • Meeting our readers where they are, whether it’s online, in person or in the pages of their local newspaper
  • Making our journalism free for state and local publications to republish
  • Engaging with women, women of color and members of the LGBTQ+ community to better understand how their lives are shaped by the decisions their elected officials make
  • Hitting the pavement to listen to our readers’ lived experiences, to tell their stories and to elevate their voices
