Thirty locals took time out of their Saturdays to learn and discuss journalism with the Alhambra Source. Mentors Rick Wilkinson (Nightline), Elaine Woo (Los Angeles Times), Jon Thurber (also of the LA Times) and Alan Mittelstaedt (USC, Neon Tommy) lent their expertise on video reporting, news writing, opinion writing and photography at the beautiful Ramona Convent Secondary School.
Some highlights below:

Independent journalism is a bedrock of democracy--and it's in crisis. Here at the Alhambra Source, we're committed to covering the local stories that matter most to you. We don’t have advertisers and we don’t have pay walls, but we do have bills. You read to the end of this story. That's great. But this kind of journalism will end without public support. Join us! Support the work and the democratic values it serves. Donate now!
