“As we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”

– Marianne Williamson

A Vision for Transformational Journalism that inspires social engagement

The Milwaukee Independent is an award-winning and advertising-free daily news magazine that advocates for inclusive social understanding in Milwaukee by publishing positive news content that covers a wide range of topics as a catalyst for community development.

With a heavy emphasis on photojournalism and analytical reporting to fulfill this mission, our editorial staff is focused to being translators and storytellers more than traditional news correspondents.

News about people building an empowered Milwaukee community.

Transformative Journalism is an activating, engaging, solution-focused approach to covering news in Milwaukee. It goes beyond the essential goal of keeping people informed. We insist on playing an active role in enabling social engagement, and helping our community focus its energy into tangible progress about issues that bring positive change.

We are proud to be an ADVERTISING-FREE publication. As such, we do not offer click-bait as editorial content.

Our sponsorship-based nonprofit business model means we depend on charitable contributions for our operational funding. This allows us to focus on the news stories we feel are important and need to be reported, without concern for ratings or how it affects our sales. That is because we have no sales, and no advertising department.

We are free follow our vision to be good stewards of information and distribute news that enriches the public.

The Nonprofit Center of Milwaukee, as our fiscal sponsor, provides its 501(c)3 status as an umbrella to the Milwaukee Independent while we wait for our own 501(c)3 status.
