No doubt you are being inundated with many worthwhile nonprofits asking you to make a year-end contribution. Santa Monica Next is no exception. If you value the work we do at Next, we ask that you please consider donating today to help us continue bringing you the coverage you value of some of Santa Monica’s most pressing issues.

Whether it’s on the topic of traffic safety, transit, bike infrastructure, sustainability, or housing, Santa Monica Next strives to be a voice of reason and to provide straight-forward, factual coverage of the controversial issues in Santa Monica that create strong opinions and loud, often fact-challenged, debates.

It is more important now than ever that there be reliable sources of information and news to act as antidote to campaigns of misinformation that will likely only grow more aggressive in 2016.

Santa Monica Next is a unique organization, both providing media coverage and actively striving to make an impact on the community we serve.

We have been watchdogs and witnesses, providing in-depth looks at the issues other media don’t have the resources or desire to explore. We translate wonky urban planner-speak into a language more comprehensible to the everyday reader. We are also committed to informing and engaging the next generation of Santa Monica community members in local issues through our Vote Local campaign.

We are also a source of information for mainstream media to better understand the nuances behind the topics we cover to assure they are accurately represented. We take an unapologetic stand for a more livable, safer, and more equitable Santa Monica.

Whether we are relating Santa Monica’s housing policies to the state-wide housing shortage, covering the city’s always-improving bike infrastructure, looking at individual projects around the city, keeping tabs on the major changes happening in our regional transit system, or hosting fun and informative events geared to engaging new voices in local issues.

We couldn’t do any of this without your continued support. Please consider making a tax-deductible donation to Santa Monica Next today.
