FYI: This event is free and open to the public.
Dolores Huerta will be the keynote speaker at this year’s Community Alliance fundraiser on Saturday, Dec. 12, at 2 p.m.
The Community Alliance newspaper is here for you. We are there when you need to know, or want to participate with, who is standing up for economic, social and environmental justice, immigrant rights and the homeless. We are helping to build a progressive movement in the Fresno area because when we unite and organize our world gets better.
Now is your opportunity to help us continue this important work by participating in our annual fundraiser. Learn about the challenges we face in the newspaper industry (more than 2,000 U.S. newspapers have shut down in the past 16 years), how social media has altered the way many people receive the news and our optimistic vision for the future of the Community Alliance.
We hope you will join us as we discuss Where Do We Go From Here?, which will include a panel of speakers directly addressing that question. Those speakers are Fresno Unified School Trustee Veva Islas, Fresno County Board of Education Trustee Daren Miller, Central Valley Progressive PAC president Simone Cranston-Rhodes and Fresno City Council member Miguel Arias.
Community Alliance Editor Eduardo Stanley will share our plan to expand our outreach to a younger audience through social media, expand and improve our website, and continue bringing you the best alternative/independent newspaper in the country. There will be music by Jemmy Bluestein and much more. You can access the Community Alliance fundraiser on Zoom by clicking here:
