  • provide historical context for breaking news.
  • unpack politicians’ spin, and provide background information needed to hold them accountable.
  • dig up facts that may be of use to social movements and other seekers of truth and justice.
  • translate complex, and often misleading, municipal documents and policies into language that layfolks will appreciate.
