THE CIVIC JOURNALISM INITIATIVE'S MISSION is to gather citizens to talk about public policy issues and amplify what they say via radio, the Internet, and print. With MPR's 31 network stations it can get into the tiniest villages in Minnesota, and with its connections to National Public Radio, Public Radio International, and the British and Canadian broadcasting companies it can also get to the capitals of the world.

It successfully elevated the discussion surrounding the bidding wars states have in trying to keep and lure businesses in its "The Economic War Among the States" conference in Washington, DC in 1996. The Civic Journalism Initiative symposium in April, 1998, with renowned University of Chicago theologian Dr. Martin E. Marty framed and elevated the national discussion of what role religion should have in public life. The Civic Journalism Initiative also has produced Minnesota-oriented projects on the family, gun violence, affordable housing, integration, the media, and elections.
