My Sapolitics is a nonpartisan, nonprofit media organization that promotes civic engagement and discourse on public policy, politics, government, and other matters of statewide concern. Our vision is to serve the journalism community as a source of innovation and to build the next great public media brand in the United States.
We advance our mission in two principal ways: First, we report, write, compile, record, shoot, and post nonpartisan news and information online at our destination web site and in the pages and on the sites of our distribution partners, to which we provide content for free. We cover a full range of topics including education, health care, human services, immigration, border issues, transportation, water, the environment, criminal justice, poverty, energy—pretty much every line in the state budget. We also cover the major candidates and campaigns for high office, though we train our sights less on the candidates than the issues. Second, we present on-the-record, open-to-the-public events: a conversation series featuring elected officials and other newsmakers, an ideas festival, a college tour, and other mission-related educational and social events. The point here is that the in-person experience is itself a distribution platform, and once the event is over, the audio and video of what took place becomes content of its own available online on our site.
