Celebrating 20 Years of Independent Media

We’ve published 296 issues and counting since 2001. Since the beginning, we have maintained the same principles: Little Village provides local, independent, free journalism that represents our values and serves our community’s needs. We believe that telling the truth can change the world. If you believe in that mission too, choose your membership level below.

Regular

$10/mo or $120/year
(AUTO-RENEW)

Because of the growth in our reader support in 2020, we were able to un-furlough our workers and GROW our team despite pandemic-related losses. Our members give us the stability to continue our important work, no matter what.

Italic

$20/mo or $240/year
(AUTO-RENEW)

We’re focusing our current growth on increasing our number of full-time staff journalists and expanding our print distribution with brand new street racks. Together, we can reach those goals!

Bold

$30/mo or $360/year
(AUTO-RENEW)

Our vision is to be among the most respected media companies in the country—a leading voice for the midwest. With our Boldest members beside us, we believe we can.
