Wear your love of local, independent journalism on your sleeve, with this super-cool Sirron Norris 48hills t-shirt


Hello, Dear Readers! 

Thanks to your support, we at 48hills are fulfilling our mission to bring you the best in local news, arts, and culture more than ever. 

We’ve published hundreds of stories this year that highlighted the tough issues, diverse voices, and wonderful resilience of the Bay Area—through the hardships and struggles of COVID and the hope and determination of this summer’s protests through to our in-depth elections coverage and the 45th annual Best of the Bay. 


Let’s keep it going for another year. We depend on you to continue keeping local, independent media alive. This year, media advertising revenue fell to almost zero and more than 11,000 journalists lost their jobs around the country. 

We’ve been pledged a generous $20,000 matching grant—will you help us meet it? Your donations are tax-deductible to the fullest extent of the law, and every penny goes to paying local journalists and editors to cover the community. Local news is essential. Please support our work to keep our community informed, aware, and involved. 

BONUS! Donate $150 and get an exclusive 48 Hills t-shirt designed by beloved local artist Sirron Norris! Donate here. 

Publisher Marke B models the Sirron Norris 48hills logo tee.
