About The Texas Observer:
The Texas Observer is an Austin-based nonprofit news organization known for fearless investigative reporting, narrative storytelling and sophisticated cultural criticism about all things Texan.

Since its founding in 1954, the Observer has covered issues that are often ignored or under-reported by other media. We strive to expose injustice and to produce the kind of impact journalism that changes people’s lives for the better. Our thoughtful arts and culture coverage recognizes the diversity and talent of Texas’ creative community. Our guiding light continues to be our founding mission statement:

“We will serve no group or party but will hew hard to the truth as we find it and the right as we see it. We are dedicated to the whole truth, to human values above all interests, to the rights of humankind as the foundation of democracy. We will take orders from none but our own conscience, and never will we overlook or misrepresent the truth to serve the interests of the powerful or cater to the ignoble in the human spirit.”

We cover stories crucial to the public interest and provoke dialogue that promotes democratic participation and open government in pursuit of a Texas where education, justice and material progress are available to all. We’re not afraid to take a stand in our reporting, and our stands are supported by facts. Our reporting is fair, accurate, and, as our mission states, hews hard to the truth as we find it. As a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, we don’t endorse candidates or legislation.

The Observer‘s reporting has led both state and national media—including The New York Times, The Washington Post, Harper’s, 60 Minutes, 20/20, Frontline, Mother Jones, The Nation, TIME magazine, National Public Radio and ABC News—to important stories about injustice and corruption in Texas. Our reporting has prompted investigations and hearings in the U.S. Congress and the Texas Legislature, and led to the exonerations of several wrongly convicted Texans.

Our work has garnered widespread acclaim. Among other honors, the Observer has been nominated for three National Magazine Awards for reporting, including back-to-back nominations in 2013 and 2014, won dozens of awards from the Association of Alternative Newsweeklies, been recognized as the nation’s Best Political Coverage by the Utne Reader, and twice been a finalist for the Livingston Award for Young Journalists.

Every day online and every month in our print magazine, the Observer delivers sharp reporting and commentary from the strangest state in the Union.
