In the past few weeks we’ve heard hundreds of questions from our readers and listeners about what’s happening in our county. Santa Cruz County residents need more information. They want more from Santa Cruz Local. Santa Cruz Local needs more staff and funding to rise to the occasion.

We invite you to upgrade your membership, to help Santa Cruz Local meet the community’s need for deep, reliable, fair and accurate reporting.

If you upgrade to a Defender or Guardian annual membership before July 1, we will include six free months of membership.
