Jeanmarie Evelly here, Executive Editor at City Limits. I’m guessing, because you’re a City Limits reader, that you care about journalism like ours—reporting that holds the powerful accountable and tells local, underreported stories. We care about it, too, and that’s why I’m writing - with a big ask.
We have the rare opportunity with NewsMatch to make your donation go even further. From now until December 31, your support of City Limits will be matched up to $1,000.
Just think of the impact that could have—not just in our newsroom, but in our community. Take our expansion of housing and homelessness coverage at this pivotal moment for New York, as the city emerges from the pandemic amidst a housing affordability crisis and a rising shelter population ([link removed]) . After years of watching the city resist publishing a more complete homeless daily census, my Deputy Editor David Brand and I decided to do what the city wouldn’t. The New Yorker covered ([link removed]) our work:
“City Limits, which was founded by housing activists, in 1976, has a full-time staff of seven people. New York City’s government employs hundreds of thousands. There’s no practical reason that the news outlet should be able to produce a more useful and comprehensive shelter census than the city.”
You can count on us to keep looking out for New York’s most vulnerable communities and to drive local impact. But, as a nonprofit newsroom, we need your help. Will you help us continue to tell stories that make a difference in our community? We need to raise $30,000 by Dec. 31 and we’re 40% there!
Executive Editor, City Limits
