It goes without saying, the last few months have been some of the most consequential in our lives. 

The changes we face are unrelenting, driven by the coronavirus pandemic, the suffering caused by severe disruptions to our economy and the social uprising demanding a reckoning with America’s many inequities. 

What’s been true through all these crises is the role local journalism has played in keeping you informed. 

Since news broke on March 5 of the first coronavirus case in Washoe County, our journalists at the Reno Gazette Journal have tirelessly chronicled the virus’ spread in our state as well as the ramifications it’s had for families, businesses and our collective future

Our reporters and photographers captured the peaceful protests by many in the wake of George Floyd’s death, as well as the violence by some that followed in Reno and Las Vegas

We’ve done our best to keep you informed about Nevada’s flawed unemployment system, the steep cuts at the legislative special session and people affected by wildfires in Northern Nevada

I’m writing this column today to again ask for your support to help us continue telling these stories. Through Thursday July 23, new subscribers can get an annual subscription to RGJ.com for $39

One day, hopefully soon, we’ll talk about this pandemic, recession and this nation’s social inequities in the past tense. But the only way we can get there will be together — and the only way we can is if we’re all informed.
