Dear FNS Reader,
2014 has been an extremely busy year for Frontera NorteSur. We’ve produced original reports on the situation in Ciudad Juarez, the legacy of the 1970s Dirty War in Mexico, the Mexican self-defense movement, deportees south of the border, and the struggle of Acapulco to recover amid violence, among other stories.
We’ve covered the efforts to build a new agricultural economy and food system in the southwestern border region of the United States. And months before the events in Ferguson, Missouri became the big national news story, Frontera NorteSur was covering a similar justice crisis from the ground in Albuquerque, New Mexico.
All this in addition to producing our regular news digest and special reports on Mexican politics, immigration the border environment, tourism economy, women’s issues, human rights, and much more.
As Frontera NorteSur is a very small operation, this reportage would not have been possible without the assistance of you, the reader. We hope that you can carry us into 2015 stronger and better prepared than ever to cover the issues we know are so important to our readers.
We’ve begun our annual fall fundraising campaign a bit early this year because we want to continue the pace of our coverage. However, without your generous support today we will have no choice but to scale back our reporting in the months that come. We think that there is a better alternative, and you can help us achieve that.
We are kindly asking readers to please send tax-deductible contributions of $30, $50, $100 or more to help us meet our goal. If you can afford more, we greatly appreciate your donation.
You can send your donation in today either by check or electronically. Just follow the instructions at the bottom of this letter. Again, all contributions to Frontera NorteSur are tax deductible.
Also, we welcome any referrals of larger funding sources. If you have a lead, please contact Dr. Garcia-Bryce at the e-mail below. And thank you so very much for your donation!
