An alert watchdog

Journalism is a vital public service in a democracy. Investigative reporting uncovers injustice, exposes corruption and holds officials accountable. Community reporting celebrates the unique nature of Tucson's people, reflecting our sense of place through a knowing lens.

We aim to provide both: to point out the things we all love about Southern Arizona, and point to possible solutions for what needs changing. We believe that just as an unexamined life is not worth living, an unexamined city is not worth living in.

A smarter Tucson is a better Tucson.

But insightful reporting doesn't come free. Make your gift today — you may make a one-time contribution, or sign up for a monthly subscription that supports nonpartisan reporting year-round.

And just one more thing: Do us a huge favor and help spread the word about by telling your friends and family about us, and why you believe truly independent local news is so vital.

AND IF YOU OPERATE A LOCAL SMALL BUSINESS, get in touch with us for exclusive rates on effective underwriting packages that reach thousands of Tucsonans every day!
