Things have been busy at The Ally. For starters, we’ve updated our website to be cleaner, more streamlined and easier to navigate (more fun, too!). There’s been so much going on behind the scenes that we thought now would be a good time to fill you in on all the changes coming your way.
New website designed for readers
You might have noticed a cleaner, better reading experience on our pages recently. That’s because we’ve been hard at work on developing a new website that is made for today’s news consumers. We’ve streamlined our content strategy and website navigation, to better reflect the interests and stories of our communities.
Thanks to the wonderful folks at Indiegraf, our website is made for readers like you, while helping to support the news media model of tomorrow. By handling the back end technology, Indiegraf empowers independent news organizations like The Ally to focus on what matters most: getting you high-quality journalism that you can trust.
Newsletters coming in May
Speaking of high-quality journalism, we’re also hard at work developing a series of newsletters that will help keep you informed, engaged and equipped with the information you need to participate in our democracy. Here’s a peak at what we’re working on.
- Ally Weekly Roundup: Get the latest stories from The Sierra Nevada Ally delivered straight to your inbox every week, and never miss a story.
- Civics Center: A weekly look at the latest in government from around the region, including interviews, briefs, explainers and more.
- Community Counter: An occasional email blast including the latest in creative writing, poetry, essays and opinions from community members.
Our newsletters will launch officially in May, but don’t wait until then to sign up and stay informed.
Nevada Civics Alliance
The Ally is proud to announce the formation and deployment of the Nevada Civics Alliance (NCA), a collaborative of independent, nonprofit media organizations, institutions and individuals committed to providing factual information on local government and civics throughout the region. The NCA will serve as a hub for community members to find and share information about what is going on in their local governments – and how we all can get involved.
The NCA is still in the planning phase, and we will have more to share about members, strategies and events in the coming weeks.
We want to hear from you
Tell us about our new website, newsletters and civics alliance. What do you think is working and isn’t? What types of stories do you wish were covered more in local news media? We want to hear it all, the good and the not so good. You can email Executive Editor, Noah Glick at firstname.lastname@example.org.
