By now you’ve gotten at least a dozen emails about #GivingTuesday asking you to donate to an important and worthy non-profit.
Today, throughout California staff are working on stories and podcasts to cover and explain issues both locally and statewide. In Los Angeles, Joe is doing a deep-dive on a new report on car parking and Sahra is examining the unintended consequences of a proposed crime fighting measure. In San Francisco, we’re going to be announcing a new editor in the next 24 hours. Melanie is working on a story about how restrictions on state transit funds limit their usefulness. I just got my first #DamienTalks up for December.
In Santa Monica, Jason is programming Streetfilms and Chill for this Friday. In Long Beach, Brian is exploring the Terminal Island Freeway Removal Project.
All of these publications are nonprofits and rely on reader donations to keep going. If you value the news, analysis, broadcasts and event programming of Streetsblog California, Streetsblog Los Angeles, Streetsblog San Francisco, LongBeachize and Santa Monica Next, then please consider making a donation today, right now. You can make your donations, here:
Free news isn’t cheap.
We believe that everyone should have access to important local news, for free.
However, it costs money to keep a local news organization like this one—independently owned and operated here in Long Beach, without the backing of any national corporation—alive.
If independent local news is important to you, please consider supporting us with a monthly or one-time contribution. Read more.
