Our June member drive is live: protect this resource!
Right now, we need your help during our short June member drive to keep the local news you read here every day going. This has been a challenging year, but with your help, we can get one step closer to closing our budget gap. Today, put a dollar value on the trustworthy reporting you rely on all year long. We can't hold those in power accountable and uplift voices from the community without your partnership.

  • David Dominguez at Youth Radio, a journalism program that focuses on South LA, talks about all the fast food that's available and how little healthy alternatives there are. He's happy to discover Grand Central Market in downtown.
  • CalArts launched a blog today named after their address' street number, 24700. Ironically, the school has talked itself up for years as a 24/7 campus of innovative and experimental arts. Congrats to LAist's Arts & Events Editor at her new gig over there!
