The New York Times took World Press Freedom Day on Sunday as an opportunity to link out to and support local news across the nation.

Voice of OC was included in people seeking Orange County news, representing a boost to the small but reputed news team.

The Times said this in support of community news: “Local journalism is in crisis and at risk of disappearing. These vital resources are critical to the safety, security and knowledge of our communities, never more so than in these difficult times. On World Press Freedom Day and every day, we encourage you to find a local news organization you trust and support it.”

And here at Voice of OC we need your support more than ever as Coronavirus has impacted small news operations just as much as your corner restaurant.

Your financial support here doesn’t go towards lining the pockets of the wealthy. At Voice of OC your tax-deductible donation goes directly to increase and sustain real journalists on the ground delivering daily news stories that help you protect your quality of life.

Please become a monthly supportive donor today.

Since you've made it this far,

You are obviously connected to your community and value good journalism. As an independent and local nonprofit, our news is accessible to all, regardless of what they can afford. Our newsroom centers on Orange County’s civic and cultural life, not ad-driven clickbait. Our reporters hold powerful interests accountable to protect your quality of life. But it’s not free to produce. It depends on donors like you.
