The North Carolina Beat tell hard stories. Stories that mainstream media wouldn't dare tell. And there is a desperate need to tell these stories. In today's world, voices are going unheard and issues going under reported. Supporting Independent News/Media outlets like The North Carolina Beat brings important issues to light in a way that creates dialogue and change. The North Carolina Beat mission is to and will always be to investigate and bring to light issues that affect us and uncover corruption that silence the voices of the people, give voice to the underrepresented, increase public awareness and bring conversations about issues that need change. We bring these stories to life in front of thousands of readers, and we will love for you to help us continue this work.
