Today Is #GivingNewsDay & WitnessLA Needs Your Help!

Today is #GivingTuesday — or #GivingNewsDay as nonprofit newsrooms across America are now calling the first Tuesday after Thanksgiving. It is the once-a-year opportunity to support nonprofit news organizations like WitnessLA that help to preserve our shared democracy.

Today, and every day until December 31, 2020, your donation will be doubled by the wonderful people at NewsMatch — meaning anything you give will have twice the impact!

Your help is particularly critical this year, as we move toward a series of exciting new plans and projects for 2022.

(More on those plans in the coming days!)

In the meantime, the independent work we do here at WitnessLA is beholden to no advertisers, no corporate overlords, and we still choose not to go behind a paywall.

Although WitnessLA is small, we are fearless and, as most of you know, our work has repeatedly made a difference — and continues to win journalism awards for doing so.

In 2022 we plan to take WitnessLA’s fearless reporting to new heights, and into new arenas, that we think you’ll find exciting.

Yet our untethered independence also means we rely on people like you to help us uncover facts, probe wrongdoing, and illuminate solutions in the world of justice and injustice — in Los Angeles and beyond.

So today we are asking for your support.

You can donate by clicking on the link here — which will take you to our NewsMatch site, which will automatically double your donations.

Anything helps. $10, $20, $50, $100 … $1000. Every dollar you send will help us expand our reporting, investigations, and investigative series.

Your donation is, of course, tax deductible.

As we said, any size donation truly helps!

AND any donation made between now and the end of the year helps TWICE as much.

With gratitude,

Celeste Fremon, Founder/Editor, WitnessLA

Taylor Walker, Assistant Editor/Editor California Justice Report

    I just gave 200 bucks; with paywalls going up (ignorance is bliss?) & reader comment sections going down all about us WLA will soon become a unique entity.
