Here’s the deal …
Since 2008, Mission Local has been all up in the Mission District reporting on everything from tacos to tech, crime to culture, murals to MUNI, recording the lives and changes in the city’s oldest (and arguably, best) neighborhood.
Originally a project of UC Berkeley’s Journalism School, we struck out on our own in 2014. In the summer of 2018, we became a fiscally sponsored project of San Francisco Public Press, which means your donations are tax deductible. You can also make out checks to SF Public Press, put Mission Local in the memo note and send to Mission Local at 2489 Mission St. #14, SF, CA. 94110. Any questions? Call us at 415-275-4739 or contact us at email@example.com.
We aspire to be a model of local, self-sustaining, fiercely independent neighborhood news. We hope to reflect the Mission in all its diverse, fun, conflicted, and fascinating brilliance. We plan to keep chronicling its many stories for years to come.
Site illustrations: The man above our What To Do listing and the sweeper at the end of each story are illustrations done by Rini Templeton, an activist-artist who did thousands of illustrations and allowed organizations and individuals to use them as open-sourced artwork. She died in 1986 in Mexico City. Some of her illustrations are kept online here.
