More Than Ever, Independent Media Makes a Difference

It’s no secret that the City and County of Fresno received millions of dollars to manage the homelessness problem. Yet, nothing happened, and the money goes mainly to…developers! And still hundreds of people are on the streets with nowhere to go.

The Community Alliance has been reporting about this and other issues that usually go unreported, or are disguised by city council members and county supervisors to make you think they are doing their job.

We continuously bring you news and analysis about these hot issues affecting our city and county. After all, it’s about our tax dollars that our elected officials manage at their will without adequately consulting you (and us).

Corruption is a bipartisan issue.

The more we know, the more we can push to correct the wrongdoing.

That’s why we need free, independent media. “Independent” means not attached to any source that could control the content of the news.

The Community Alliance has been exposing corruption in our local institutions since 1996. We are the only independent and progressive publication in the San Joaquin Valley.

Because we are not mainstream and not connected to big money, we struggle to survive.

Without your support, we won’t be able to publish the stories you won’t find anywhere else.

As the cost of producing a printed and online local paper goes up, our monetary resources don’t.

More than ever, in this fast-changing world, independent media plays a crucial role.

Help us to continue bringing you fair information and social analysis so that we can better understand our society and make the right decisions. Let’s make Fresno and the San Joaquin Valley a better place to live. Let’s be sure we have an independent media you can trust.

Join us on Dec. 8 for our fundraiser at the SEIU Local 521 (5228 E. Pine Ave., Fresno). Chat with our writers and long-time supporters. Help us to make our paper the right tool to confront corruption and wrongdoing.

Subscribe, donate, join and enjoy!

Stay tuned for our keynote speaker and special guests.

Several old motels have been refurbished to house homeless folks. Where did that funding come from and how many people have been housed?
