Standard line when I speak about nearly nine years of @TexasTribune: A public-service mission cannot be accomplished behind a pay wall. That’s why we give everything away. Free to consume.

In the last month, @TexasTribune has gone to great lengths to tell tales of migrant parents forcibly separated from their kids. We've dispatched reporters, photographers + videographers to document the impact of federal immigration policies trib.it/jW #txlege #tx2018 https://t.co/BdS1pokPG8
 
Our journalists have spoken w asylum-seekers stranded w ankle monitors as they await their fate, fact-checked claims by administration + border officials, and met immigrant detainees offered reunification in exchange for self-deportation trib.it/jW #txlege #tx2018 https://t.co/CMmL06dhNS
 
We’ve provided this deep, persistent coverage because our mission to engage and inform Texans on politics and public policy includes holding people in power and institutions accountable at moments like these trib.it/jW #txlege #tx2018 https://t.co/zvXnyTgdcU
 
We’re not done yet. As public and media attention fades, we're staying the course: We’re moving two full-time reporters to the Rio Grande Valley to establish a second border bureau dedicated to covering this crisis — and we need your help trib.it/jW #txlege #tx2018 https://t.co/TpR6aiB90M
 
Today @TexasTribune announced a crowdfund to help cover the unbudgeted costs of this critical work. Goal: $35k by 7/31 to help staff the RGV bureau for the next 3 months — to cover housing, travel, photo, video, translation + data analysis trib.it/jW #txlege #tx2018 https://t.co/Wr1uHvDL27
 
Already we’ve confirmed one bit of good news on the philanthropy front: Chico and Ann Newman + the John and Florence Newman Foundation have generously agreed to kick in $15k in matching funds when we hit $35k trib.it/jW #txlege #tx2018 https://t.co/FkMHNcJLkq
 
If you’re not supporting @TexasTribune = this is a great time. If you’re already a supporter, do a bit more? Help us keep conversation going + focus on those affected + shine a light on decisions that got us here + where we go next. Thx! trib.it/jW #txlege #tx2018 https://t.co/7LqE950f8B
