New Mexico In Depth is a member-supported nonprofit digital news organization. Its mission is to better the lives of New Mexicans, particularly those from low-income communities, by producing data-rich, investigative stories that can be a catalyst for change. The staff's knowledge of state government and decades of statehouse reporting and investigations into the state’s largest institutions and systems, combined with strong data skills and ambition, results in impact that far exceeds their size.
