Alhambra Source creates new partnerships

Alhambra Source is pleased to announce collaborations with Next American City, Hyphen Magazine, and an ongoing partnership with LA Beez.

Our most recent partnership is with Next American City, a Philadelphia nonprofit organization dedicated to "promoting socially and environmentally sustainable economic growth in America’s cities and examining how and why our built environment, economy, society and culture are changing." They do this by hosting national events, publishing a quarterly magazine, and maintaining an interactive website. Next American City will occasionally feature Alhambra Source stories on their site, and we plan to work together on some larger pieces together.

Hyphen Magazine "Asian America unabridged" is another recent collaboration. A group of 20- to 30-year-old journalists in San Francisco created the national magazine in 2003 with a goal of “tackling issues of culture and community with substance and sass.” The magazine recently published an Alhambra Source article titled “Going to Vegas for the Holidays” and we intend on working together on other stories.

Alhambra Source is also a member of LA Beez, an online network of ethnic and regional news outlets affiliated with New American Media, which frequently features our articles. We also partnered with them and the Alhambra based California Health Care Foundation Center for Health Reporting on a project about Adult Day-Health Care Centers.

About Alhambra Source:

Alhambra Source is the city’s only independent, local news outlet. A multilingual news website where dozens of community members — working with a professional journalist — report on their city, the site serves as a forum for local voices, and a platform for the expression and development of writers, videographers, and photographers.

Alhambra Source is also part of a joint research project at USC Annenberg’s Communication School’s Metamorphosis Project and the School of Journalism, investigating how local news can improve civic engagement in a diverse city.
