About Us

About Dogwood

We’re interested in solutions.  We look at the issues facing groups across the Commonwealth and don’t just ask why, but what needs to happen in order to fix them. It’s not enough to talk about Alexandria’s flooding problems and what caused them. City residents need to know how it’ll all be fixed. That’s where we come in. We’re not focused only on breaking news. For us, being right is more important than being first with a story. We want to do more than just highlight issues. We want to point toward solutions and what can be done.

We also want to share Virginia’s cultures, traditions and highlight all of the groups that make up the Commonwealth as a whole. Sometimes it’s easy to forget just how many different people call Virginia home, with different celebrations and events. We want to share all of that. As the number of local news outlets declines in Virginia and across the country and the amount of digital information surges, it’s hard to know where to turn. We want to fill the gap – and your social feeds – with content that is thoughtful, engaging, inspiring and motivating. 

We’ll bring you the story behind the story and explore how our readers’ lives are impacted by the news of the day. Our reporting is honest, to-the-point and in the service of our readers.
