Support Nonprofit Journalism for Louisiana

During the past six months, the Bayou Brief- Louisiana's only statewide nonprofit publication- has already attracted 1.97 million readers, and with the support of a small group of progressive Southerners, we have built this publication together, reporting on previously unknown environmental disasters, civil rights abuses, racism, and political and corporate corruption. 

Some of our stories have made national news, but all of them have made a difference. We've accomplished all of this without taking a dime from advertisers or political candidates, and we've offered all of our reporting for free. 

But we are on a shoe-string budget, and to ensure we thrive and continue to expand, we need support from people like you, people who believe in the promise and the potential of a vibrant, progressive, and inclusive South. 

Help us continue our mission by making a financial contribution and by sharing your own stories. 

Build this with us. Together, we can hack the corporate media and tell the truth about our land and its people,
