We need you

We need to raise $ 40,000 by the end of this year so we can continue producing independent local news online, in the air, and in print. Thanks to the generosity of the many foundations supporting this year’s National NewsMatch Initiative, donations we receive through December will be matched dollar for dollar. Your financial support makes our work possible.
