WHY DO WE NEED YOUR SUPPORT?

Journalism can no longer be supported with advertising revenue alone; newspapers across the country have stopped publishing or laid off staff.

Credible, vetted journalism is necessary for the functioning of a democracy. SN&R has supported community dialogue, spotlighted important issues, spoken truth to power and covered the arts in Sacramento since 1989.

We have always been committed to keeping our print and digital content free, and we need your help to continue. Your support goes to directly fund our reporters and support staff who are tirelessly working to ensure that local coverage of Sacramento can continue.

While daily papers across the country have lost readers at a dramatic rate over the last ten years, our audience has remained steady. With your support, the SN&R can return in some form. We are exploring options that include partnerships or conversion to a nonprofit. If you have ideas or would like to help, please email us.

Meanwhile, our editorial staff continues to report on our community during these uncertain times. Your support directly funds their work.

Commitment to Our Five Coverage Topics

1. The COVID-19 pandemic

We will continue to track the public health response and watch out for racial disparities and vulnerable populations, including the unhoused.

2. Economic recovery

We will cover the unemployed and workers and small, locally-owned businesses, including government assistance efforts.

3. Police reform

We will monitor the police reform and Defund the Police debates–and the broader reckoning on race–and give a forum to diverse voices.

4. Environmental threats

We will continue to cover the future of our region’s ecology, including reporting on the Delta, catastrophic wildfires, and issues affecting climate change.

5. Arts and entertainment

We will chronicle the efforts to safely reopen local venues, while continuing to lift up local artists and musicians.

I don’t always get to see the paper, but believe in supporting the press, who helped me for over 30 years while I worked for a number of arts organizations.
