As we build this nonprofit newsroom, we will be listening closely to people in New Orleans’ communities to align our work with the needs and priorities of the people.

Verite is your nonprofit new source for New Orleans.

Our metropolitan area, with its unique culture and natural resources, has been left behind compared to similar national metropolitan areas. Delving into perspectives from communities that have been historically dismissed or ignored, we will create thoughtful, positive community conversations focusing on the crucial, fundamental topics such as education, housing, health care, criminal justice, the environment and politics to help our community reach its full potential.  Verite will explore inequities and elevate solutions to problems that include the racial wealth gap, gentrification, health care disparities, voter disenfranchisement, mass incarceration and chronic poverty. 

We want to hear from you as we plan our coverage and launch our work. We are here for you.
