New Mexico In Depth is a seven-year-old, award-winning digital-first nonprofit media outlet that focuses on telling investigative, data-rich stories with an eye on solutions that lead to change. Our journalism not only has changed state laws but seeks out perspectives from those with less access to powerful people or institutions. Our work prioritizes issues important to underserved communities, with a particular focus on the most vulnerable among us: children, incarcerated people, low-income families, tribal communities. Public policy areas we specialize in are education, criminal justice, health, and good government reform.
