The Badger Project is a nonpartisan, citizen-supported journalism nonprofit in Wisconsin which investigates our public officials, as well as other things, within the state.

With the decline of local newspapers across the state, this project aims to try and fill at least a small portion of that gap.

Elected officials work for the people and do the people’s business. They don’t get to do it in secret.

To promote good government, we must promote transparency.

The Badger Project is a member of the Local Independent Online News Publishers, and a member of the Institute for Nonprofit News.

We partner with local newspapers in Wisconsin to publish our stories and get our work to the people it affects most.
