There is so much for which to be thankful, despite the harrowing year. At Civil Beat, we have never been more thankful for readers like you. As we head into the final stretch of 2020, we’re asking you to support our local, nonprofit newsroom. To ensure we have the resources next year to continue reporting on the pandemic and its aftermath, we’re hoping to raise $200,000 by December 31.
Civil Beat has raised $10,000 towards our $200,000 goal!
