July 17 letters to the editor
To the editor:
I wanted to take a moment to thank you for printing stories and perspectives from local residents and their experiences with racism in our community.
Before hearing from people in our town, I would have described Newberg as conservative, but accepting. Sadly, I am learning my community is not as accepting as I once thought.
Thank you to the brave citizens willing to talk about their experiences. I hope they continue to talk, that you — the newspaper — continue to seek out and print their stories, and that we continue to listen.
You count on us to stay informed and we depend on you to fund our efforts. Quality local journalism takes time and money. Please support us to protect the future of community journalism.
