We've made all Trib stories free this month. Here's why.
For the entire month of August, we've made our journalism free of charge.
Simply register and you'll receive free access to the PortlandTribune.com through Aug. 31, giving you access to not only today's stories, but our entire library of past stories, without paying a dime.
There are other perks, too. You'll also have access to our E-edition by clicking the button on the top of our homepage.
We're doing this to let more people know about the depth and breadth of the stories we cover.
We don't pretend to cover the state of Oregon as a whole, or even the metro area. We're the Portland Tribune and we're focused like a laser on Portland. We're in the middle of a five-part investigative series on how the Ku Klux Klan came to dominate Portland politics a century ago; how Portlanders handled the recent heat waves; the fear of growing classroom sizes in Portland Public Schools; the possible return of city workers to downtown offices; transportation projects like a new Columbia River bridge and the Rose Quarter project; and proposed changes to the charters of Portland and Multnomah County, essentially the constitutions that govern how those municipalities work and function.
And there's more to come.
We'll be covering the November elections, so readers will know the issues and the candidates long before their ballots arrive in the mail. We have some of the finest coverage of arts and entertainment, of sports, and of the business scene of any media in our region.
And Tribune readers are not shy about sharing their thoughts: letters to the editor and opinion columns are an integral part of our publications, both online and in print.
The newsroom of the Portland Tribune believes in Portland, a city that has taken some hits in recent years, from pandemics, riots, wildfires and a surge in homelessness. We were there through those challenging times, and we're here now as the city recovers.
We'd love it if you came along for the ride.
Thank you for reading.
