One Greater Minnesota is a multi-year reporting initiative. It's brought to you by TPT’s long-running public affairs weekly program, Almanac. Its purpose is to connect Minnesotans through multi-platform stories from across the state. We want to examine how we’re changing and how much we share from region to region. Funded by The Otto Bremer Trust, with additional funding from The Blandin Foundation and The Minneapolis Foundation, these stories encourage public discourse through regional forums and digital outreach, and aim to enhance public media programming in Minnesota.
