Help Black Iowa News better serve Iowa’s Black communities

When I started Black Iowa News, I was tired of watching other news outlets do a poor job of telling our stories. So I operate differently.

We’ve launched a fundraising campaign to help expand our journalism to better serve Iowa’s Black communities. We must unite and fight the erasure of our history, voter suppression and the racial inequities challenging our ability to make progress as a people.

To keep doing what we do, we need your help in raising $3,500 to support our work.

This funding will allow our team to focus on journalism highlighting, uplifting and amplifying Black voices. In just the last three years, we’ve reached thousands of readers who rely on us to cover stories ignored or misrepresented by traditional media outlets. Will you support us?
