Hi Santa Cruz Local reader,
We are SO close to reaching our $10,000 goal by Friday.
We just need $450 more.
This money will allow us to begin reporting for a series on solutions for homelessness in Santa Cruz County.
Can we count you in? Listen to Santa Cruz Local members who have donated recently:
“I believe Santa Cruz Local led the way in interviewing people experiencing homelessness, and now their voices are part of the coalition moving forward. Santa Cruz Local is changing journalism for the better.” - Ellen Farmer
“Local journalism is our only real window into our local governments, and it is the only real hope if we are to hold those governments accountable or understand their successes. Local independent journalism serves and informs our community, and an effective democracy is not possible without it.” - Brad Brereton
“I made the donation in response to your promise of an in-depth investigation of the homelessness crisis, hoping that your research will enhance our understanding of the problem and how to address it locally.” - Carol Chetkovich
“I'm always eager to support real journalism that presents information on the key issues in our community with depth and balance.” - Don Lane
“I support Santa Cruz Local because it's the best source I've found for keeping up with the local news and for understanding what's going on with our local government.” - Joel Murach
Will you help us get started on our reporting and donate today?
