North News

North News is a grassroots print and digital community news source and youth journalism program in North Minneapolis. We seek to deepen understanding, empathy, and appreciation for the Northside through our deep, interrogative, and community-sourced coverage. Our goal is to expand local and Twin Cities-wide perceptions of this place which is often reduced to a single, negative narrative – one of crime, poverty, blight, and disparity. We dig deep beneath the surface and lift up North Minneapolis’ nuanced truths. We are a source of great pride within our community.
