Sahan Journal is the only 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization dedicated to providing authentic news reporting for and about immigrants and refugees in Minnesota.

Sahan Journal's reporting is free to everyone. That means we don't put our essential journalism behind a paywall. But, as a nonprofit newsroom, we can’t do this critical work without your help. Become a monthly donor today to help us continue to provide award-winning reporting to our community. Thank you.

It’s times like these that bring Sahan Journal’s mission even more clearly into focus. 

We’re here to cover the stories for and about immigrants and refugees in Minnesota. And we’re here telling stories that others don’t.  We do this for you as we respond to your questions, your concerns, your need for information and your demand for sense-making. That’s why you read Sahan Journal. Thank you. 

Here’s a sampling of stories we’ve recently covered: 

And we’re covering stories in four languages: Somali, Spanish, Hmong and English. 

Today, when you support Sahan Journal, you will also provide meals to Minnesota families in need. 

Please consider making 10 meals possible for families when you donate $60 to Sahan Journal. 

Every donation will provide meals to people in need in this community so be as generous as you can. Thanks for your support of Sahan Journal and Second Harvest Heartland. 

Thank you for your generosity.

P.S. Give now and provide meals to Minnesota families. The more you give to Sahan Journal, the more meals you provide. $60 = 10 meals; $100 = 30 meals. Thank you.
