2020 saw the largest protest movement in U.S. history, including gatherings of hundreds in Bloomfield affirming Black lives matter and denouncing systemic racism.

Bloomfield Information Project reported from the first local march in remembrance of George Floyd. We compiled a Bloomfield citizens' agenda from comments at a community meeting. We investigated people's concerns about policing on Bloomfield Ave. And followed up with the town council on your behalf. After we rounded up the latest on the issue, officials at a community meeting said the police department would have an independent study conducted.

That's the kind of local journalism Bloomfield deserves. It helps you understand how national movements manifest in daily life in our community. But it takes dozens of hours to produce. And it needs your support.

We have just two weeks left in our donation-matching period to raise the money we need to support our work in the new year. We plan to launch community training programs, a Spanish-language news service, and do more original reporting.

If you can, please donate to support our work at bloomfieldinfo.org/give by Dec. 31. Your monthly donation will be matched 12x or your one-time gift will be doubled.
