Hi City Paper readers,
Thank you again to all the readers who have become members and helped sustain our paper through the coronavirus crisis. We’re about 50 people shy of our goal of 600 members, which would double our pre-crisis membership. Your contributions to our paper have enabled us to do great work, and they’ve inspired others to give as well. One of our readers has been so encouraged by the outpouring of community support and impact of our reporting that they will be matching the next $1,000 we raise through our membership program this week. That means that when you become a member this week, you’ll double your support of local journalism.
Here are highlights from our most recent COVID-19 coverage:
- The new DC Hospitality Coalition mobilizes to ‘Save as Many Restaurants as Possible.’
