WHY support The UpTake?

As you know, The UpTake is a nonprofit news organization and therefore relies on fundraising (not advertising or special interests) to provide live online video of the Minnesota legislature and other newsworthy events that other news outlets ignore and just can’t cover with video. No one provides you with “see for yourself” news video like we do.

Thank you for your support of local, nonprofit media.
