Climate change and clean water. The future of energy in Washington state. Oil spills. Wildfire. There are fewer reporters than ever in Olympia to report what lawmakers are doing on key environmental issues.

We can fix that. But we need your help.

The Statehouse News Project is a crowdfunded way to connect citizens with elected officials in Olympia with unbiased journalism. We’ll deliver in-depth reports right to your inbox, and to the front page of newspapers across the state, that help to make a stronger democracy in Washington state.

Our first campaign for 2016 is Olympia Environmental News and we set a goal of $5,000.

If you love this state like we do, we hope you’ll help us get this campaign off to a strong start. THANK YOU for your support!

Back the project today on Beacon Reader.
