Reform Austin (RA) was created to inform Texans about politics and politicians. We produce high-quality investigative reporting from a network of local correspondents to engage readers about what goes on behind the doors of our state Capitol through our daily news site, RA News.

RA News is dedicated to increasing transparency regarding the use of public money and the policies that shape everyday life in Texas. We provide independent reporting for a better Texas and are focused on long-form, investigative and enterprise stories.

We believe that a story doesn’t always have to be written to be effective. We embrace a multi-platform, digital-first, engagement-driven approach to journalism for all audiences. RA produces weekly newscasts and converses with Texans through our channel PinkDome TV.
