The Minnesota Reformer is a nonprofit, nonpartisan news organization covering state politics and policy. We focus on enterprise journalism — investigations, analysis, storytelling. We're ferreting out corruption and watching out for corporate influence in government decisionmaking. We're telling stories of people often left out of the usual media narratives. We're getting policymakers focused on the most important problems and how to fix them. The Reformer is part of States Newsroom, a national 501(c)(3) nonprofit supported by grants and a coalition of donors and readers. It retains full editorial independence.
