The New Orleans Tribune Remains Committed to the Community We Have Served for 35 Years!
We want to thank our dedicated readers and followers for continuing to turn to our pages and digital platforms for news, information and analysis. We have proudly served our community as a trusted, unfettered voice for 35 years.
Like many of you, we have been impacted by the COVID-19 crisis in our city, state and nation. We suffered revenue losses and have had to make adjustments and tough decisions, furloughing some staff and reducing others’ work hours. Members of our McKenna Publishing family are following the same guidelines and protocols that have been placed on us all. Still, we remain committed to our mission—speaking to, for and about New Orleans’s Black community and the issues that impact it—especially in this difficult and uncertain time.
We have never had a paywall on our online content, and we will not start now because we understand just how important access to information is to our community.
But we need your support. Here’s how you can help. First, we need you to keep clicking, opening, liking, following, and reading our paper—YOUR paper—in print and online. We encourage you to turn to our digital platforms and social media to get the latest from The New Orleans Tribune. If you haven’t already done so, subscribe to right on time!, our e-newsletter by clicking here. Follow us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram and visit us at www.theneworleanstribune.com.
Here’s the second thing we need you to do, right now . . . and when this is over, let the businesses, institutions and organizations that you patronize know that The New Orleans Tribune is your source for news and information. Let them know that when you see their messages in the pages of The Tribune and on a right on time! banner, you know they are specifically targeting you, and that they respect and appreciate your patronage.
Finally, continue to stay healthy and safe. Follow social distancing guidelines recommended by experts, and remember to wash your hands, disinfect frequently used surfaces, wear a mask in public, only venture our if you are an essential employee or for essential needs, and stay home if you are sick.
Our communities have been disproportionately impacted by COVID-19, and while we certainly look to our leaders and elected officials to do those things within their power to create policy that strengthen and protect our communities, there are still some things we can and must do for ourselves. Remember, no one is going to save us, but us!
Protect yourselves and your families. Whenever possible, let’s continue to support the businesses in OUR communities; and let’s support each other through these difficult times.
