Thanks to everyone who signed up to become a new contributor after we launched our end-of-year campaign at the end of October.

We’re well on our way to meeting our goal of 100 new, monthly contributors by the end of the year, which is great news. 

Your support helps us continue our work to make sense of the important local issues in Longmont, bring you a wide array of voices and perspectives, and build a strong foundation for independent, local journalism. It's also helping us expand our coverage of the Latinx community, which is currently underway, and will go beyond simply translating stories into Spanish. More on that in the weeks ahead. 

So, if you haven’t yet, please support The Leader’s form of service journalism with a monthly contribution of $5, $10, or even $25 a month
