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.

Working Narratives

We work with movements to tell great stories that inspire, activate and enliven our democracy. We believe that social movements thrive and win when they draw on participants’ personal experiences and local cultures. By telling stories—whether in the form of performance, radio, video, or other media—movements build power, envision new democratic possibilities, and change culture and policy. Our work is located at the intersection of arts, technology, and policy.
