We know D.C. Get our free newsletter to stay in the know.

Hello, D.C.,

We’ve been blown away by the support we’ve gotten since we asked for your help as we navigate the coronavirus pandemic. So far, 173 of your fellow readers have pitched in to support their community paper. It’s incredible to see, but we know we can do more. And we have to. The paper is losing a lot of money from canceled events and lost ad sales, but Washingtonians need free, trusted local journalism now more than ever. Help us reach 600 members by the end of April, which would double our current membership, so that we can continue providing valuable journalism for everyone. Will you be one of them?

In just the last week, our members have enabled us to keep our newsroom running and cover the impact of COVID-19 on our community. Here are a few highlights:
