A few days ago I attended the Save the Reader rally, and I am happy to share that the Reader will be saved. The paper will become a nonprofit publication and continue as a voice for marginalized people. The Reader is an important part of the community, their continued success is vital to our future. I offer my personal best wishes to Tracy Baim, a pioneering journalist, and passionate activist. Her determination and steadfastness are why we are able to celebrate today,” said Ald.
