About Us

About The Copper Courier

We empower Arizonans through local reporting that helps people understand and affect the issues impacting their lives.

We believe that by investing in the work of local journalists across the country we can positively impact civic participation and build a healthier democracy from the ground up. Through original reporting and human-focused storytelling, we highlight the issues and forces that shape our lives while calling attention to the impacts of policy-making and political action at the local level. As we follow the ripple effect of decisions in Washington on families and communities across the country, we underscore the innovations and ideas emerging at the city, state, and county level that too rarely reach a broader audience. The Copper Courier amplifies the voices of those building a government that works for all of us—and we hold accountable those who threaten it.
