#CoGivesDay: Support Nonprofit Journalism for a More Livable City

SBD COGives FB

Welcome to Colorado Gives Day. As the new editor of Streetsblog Denver, I would like to thank you for being a reader, a previous one-time donor or a current monthly donor.

As you know, Denver’s streets have become crowded, dangerous and uncivil and Streetsblog plays an important role in making this city a better place to live. It’s our mission to cover better walking, better biking and better transit—and people like you make what we do possible.

Since we launched five years ago, our nonprofit journalism has helped this city:

  • Start the conversation about VisionZero
  • Raise the profile of the issues we cover in local media
  • Ensure that safer streets and transit are priorities for city funding

Today, during the statewide Colorado Gives day, our all-volunteer board of directors and myself would like to ask you to consider making a tax-deductible donation.

As I settle into this new role, I’d also like to ask you to reach out anytime. If you have questions, tips, story ideas or feedback, never hesitate to write. I can be reached at andy@streetsblog.org.

Thanks agian,

—Andy
