The news we publish is really public service, funded mostly by a few hundred individuals just like you. Because you read The Ingleside Light, I know you care about the affairs of our community, and I hope you will join us as a member today.
Join us today with a membership to The Ingleside Light, and you’ll be aligned with hundreds of members who help power our journalism and the real-world change it creates. Becoming a member takes only a few minutes, and you’ll know that you’re helping make a better informed and connected neighborhood for all people.
I ask you to join them by becoming a member to support our independent community news that shines a light on the public affairs of our neighborhood. Every article is published with the intent that each will help our readers be better informed so they can make the best decisions possible.
We shine that light with purpose. Our mission is to use the force of the neighborhood press to cause meaningful impact. We have a ways to go before we're a robust newsroom but here's what we've done just this year with our limited resources:
- The Ingleside Light tracked the community member concerns over the redrawing of San Francisco's supervisor district boundaries. Four reports and counting centering on District Seven and 11 have been published to date.
- From Muscle Maker Grill's recent opening to the closure of The Comics Outpost, The Ingleside Light tracks the travails and triumphs of small businesses while also sharing where to get bubble tea in the neighborhood.
- The Ingleside Light has reported on the labor strife at City College of San Francisco, the neighborhood's economic engine and cultural wellspring.
- The Ingleside Light highlighted the histories of Balboa Park, Ingleside Station and Ingleside Presbyterian Church and the Great Cloud of Witnesses.
- The Ingleside Light makes a special point to cover the arts, from the shows at the neighborhood's only gallery to the status of public art.
- Followed the restoration of Muni service, monitored the status of specific bus lines, spelled out transit agency spending plans and reported community member calls for safety improvements.
- The Ingleside Light co-organized and served as a media sponsor for the first-ever Ingleside Fest, a celebration highlighting all of the neighborhood's good stuff. The Ingleside Light also sponsored Ingleside Gallery's Rising Star Award for artists under 20 years of age as part of the Celebrating Women showcase.
All of these reports are from the first three months of this year, and each belies the commitment we have to the people of the greater Ingleside neighborhood. We're only able to sustain it because of the generosity and confidence of our readers.
Join over 300 members today. Help ensure that The Ingleside Light has the resources to produce more stories and follow the most important issues wherever they lead and for however long it takes.
Proud Ingleside news publisher
