We are an independent online news organization that uses fearless storytelling as a catalyst for positive social change & civic engagement.
TheUpTake.org, celebrating its fifth year, is a nonprofit, citizen-driven news organization that acts as catalyst for positive change through the direct power of social media and storytelling.
As other news outlets are slashing their staffs and pulling back on coverage, The UpTake shows up to fill the gap. We are proud to tell the stories that affect everyday people in our communities: We are there when workers’ rights are threatened. We are there when a family faces foreclosure. We are there when citizens have had enough with the banking industry. We are there when a financially stressed neighborhood is hit by a tornado. We are there when immigrants are denied health care. And we are there when legislators begin a history-making debate.
Thank you for your support as we continue to expose the raw, unvarnished truth and contribute to an informed citizenry and a healthy democracy. You may have been motivated to make a gift by an issue that was important to you…something you felt passionate about.
The UpTake needs your on-going support so it can be there the next time and the time after that. With your continued support, The UpTake will be there when it matters most to you.
