About Oklahoma Watch

WHO WE ARE

Oklahoma Watch is a nonprofit, tax-exempt, 501(c)(3) corporation whose mission is to produce in-depth and investigative journalism on public-policy and quality-of-life issues facing the state.

Our mission: To dig beneath the surface of issues of public importance, provide insightful analysis and reveal meaningful trends, facts,  issues, underlying causes and  possible solutions. Oklahoma Watch is non-partisan and strives to be balanced, fair, accurate and comprehensive. Our goal is to promote and deepen public and private debate that makes a difference in the lives of Oklahomans.

Our content: We generate original content that is distributed by media partners around the state and through our website and social media. We focus on data-driven journalism and other enterprising reporting that complements coverage in other Oklahoma and regional media. We collaborate with other news outlets. Topics of particular interest include poverty, common education, higher education, health care, children, mental health, public money, the elderly and the underprivileged. We strongly support First Amendment rights and transparency in government and we value and promote the news media’s watchdog role.
