Aspen Journalism is a local, nonprofit and investigative journalism organization in Aspen, Colorado.
Our mission is to produce investigative journalism for the benefit of people with a stake in the Aspen region, as well-informed citizens make better decisions.
Our area of interest radiates outward from Aspen to include Pitkin County, the Roaring Fork River watershed, the Western Slope, the state of Colorado, and the Colorado River basin.
We take a shoe-leather approach to reporting, with an emphasis on defining a beat and staying on it.
We are an independent news organization, but we work in collaboration with other news organizations, which helps us reach more citizens.
After we publish our stories on the Aspen Journalism website, other news organizations are invited to publish them, without charge, under our Creative Commons guidelines.
Aspen Journalism is supported by people who appreciate the value of good local journalism and a free press.
