Founded by Lexington residents in 2021, the Observer is a nonprofit digital newsroom devoted to reporting on Lexington—from serious investigative and accountability reporting, to breaking news and explainers. Our goal is to be a part of civic life in Lexington, joining community organizations including LexMedia.org and publications like the Lexington Times and the Lexington Minuteman. We hope to increase both understanding and participation in our community.

We are a mostly-volunteer crew with experience in newsrooms, running non-profits, and living and working in Lexington. We’re raising money to hire—at a minimum—one more full-time reporter, and hopefully more. We’ll manage and direct LexObserver with transparency so the community can see how decisions are made.

Join us—and don’t forget all of your contributions are tax-deductible. Thank you so much.
