As a career journalist and EJ advocate, I see community-based media like the Alhambra Source as crucial to democracy and equality.

I support Alhambra Source as often as I can because I believe a free and independent press is vital to the democratic process. No other news outlet with high journalistic standards consistently covers the stories and issues that matter to our community.

From our coverage of affordable housing, 626 Golden Streets  and our illuminating pedestrian safety videos, 2019 was an exciting year for Alhambra and Alhambra Source. We offered high school seniors a financial roadmap with our own  “How Not To Be Broke: A  Financial Literacy Workshop” and covered an array of key stories from City Hall and the surrounding community.  In this photo gallery, we review some of our favorite moments and top stories as we prepare for another strong year in 2020.
