Traditional newspapers are disappearing. Social media is too often filled with misinformation and clickbait. As more local news outlets shrink and die, we're losing access to the in-depth, investigative journalism Arkansans desperately need.
The good news is that you have the power to give better journalism to our community!
With your support, the Arkansas Nonprofit News Network (ANNN) will continue reporting stories in 2022 that would otherwise be neglected. Best of all, when you donate now, NewsMatch will DOUBLE your donation!
We can't be sure what next year will throw at our community, but with your support, we can keep providing free access to in-depth, investigative journalism.
I wanted to revisit a few stories ANNN reported on in 2021 that I'm so proud of:

(Note: One of the two men, Terry David Bateman, was acquitted by a jury Oct. 27. The other, Bradley Rowland, pleaded guilty to several drug-related charges on Nov. 5.)
