It was quite the year at Oakland Local. We dug into education coverage, focusing on the school system and local organizations that serve youth, on zoning and development downtown, on the tech boom, the food scene, and Oakland’s amazing arts and culture.
This was the year we launched 4 going out guides–Meg’s List, This Weekend in the Yay! Oakland Social and Oakulture, and the year we started to write not just about food justice but about great places to eat and buy food, and about food artisans, manufacturers and vendors
So what were the most read stories?
So you know we’re a news nonprofit, right? And not affiliated with a university, sugar daddy (or mama) or endowment (sigh). That means we need your donations to help us fund this coverage for next year.
If you want to see more Oakland Local reporting on Oakland, please make a tax-deductible donation today: $10, $25, $50 or more. If all our readers gave, we’d make our budget, no problem, but we’ve got a deficit right now, and we need you to give so we can keep delivering authentic, local stories.
