Salem Weekly is now more important than ever

swlogoourcolor4x4With all the local and global changes, and with our difficult choices ahead, there is an increasing need for what we do. Since 2004, Salem Weekly has endeavored to investigate and publish news stories which other mainstream media sources won’t.

And because we believe accessing local news shouldn’t be contingent upon a subscription, the Salem Weekly newspaper will always be free and available to all of our readers, both in print and online. Which is why we rely so heavily upon our financial contributors to sustain Salem Weekly’s vision of providing a positive, credible, hyper-local alternative.

And there is so much more we can do.

But producing a relevant, free newspaper is challenging…and costly. We are now reaching out to support our journalism through a one-time gift or monthly contribution.

With sincere gratitude,
