If you want to support local journalism, become a member of The Milpitas Beat today. 

There’s no use in sugar-coating it: Local journalism is in jeopardy. All across this country, newspapers, faced with decreasing revenue, are closing up shop. And many of the newspapers that are still surviving have been gobbled up by private equity firms. These firms put their sole focus on building profit, and not community -- and in the process, they have turned once-vibrant newspapers into shells of their former selves. Anyone who has ever seen a supposedly "local" newspaper not covering local news knows what we are talking about. 

That’s why we created The Milpitas Beat. We want to work to create a newspaper that is deeply in touch with what the residents of Milpitas are thinking, feeling, and wanting to see in their community. Guided by a deep fascination of people, stories, culture, art, education, and politics, we work with passion, always, to deliver the articles and media that speak most directly to the people whom we serve. Also, as residents of Milpitas ourselves, we are deeply committed to creating a print and online newspaper that supports and enriches the community in any way it can.

By being a member and making a monthly contribution to the work we do, you can help with The Beat's sustainability, so that we can continue to bring you news, opinions, blogs, videos, and more.
