2019 Journalism & Civic Engagement Highlights
- Best of Nonprofit News 2019: The Institute for Nonprofit News recognized Alhambra Source in the "Local Investigations" category for reporting on the possible displacement of Alhambra's Sikh Temple.
- Partnered with Royal Business Bank to present "How Not To Be Broke,” a free financial literacy workshop, which taught graduating seniors from Alhambra Unified School District the essentials in how to think about money, loans and credit.
- I-710 Stub: We have been in the forefront of telling you the ins and outs of state legislative efforts to end efforts to complete the I-710 Freeway and take the I-710 stub, which ends at Valley Blvd., out of the state highway system.
- Sikh Saga: Alhambra's Sikh community may lose its longtime home in Alhambra due to property owner’s plans to redevelop their current property, on Chapel Ave., into a multi-use condominium. Our reporting on this issue showed the nuances of the city permit process and explained issues with required notifications. It continued our tradition of giving immigrant communities a voice in the discussion.
