The BASE location on the edge of Roxbury, a neighborhood that is approximately 60 percent black and 23 percent Latino, is helping to bridge the gap and bring baseball to communities that have been excluded from the sport. But that’s not all they do.
The Boston Institute for Nonprofit Journalism was founded to produce solid independent reporting across Massachusetts. In recent years, we have expanded that mandate to include helping rebuild local news from the ground up. And we pursue both linked missions in the public interest. Therefore, we absolutely depend on the public—readers like you—to donate the funds we need to keeping afflicting the comfortable and comforting the afflicted. So please dig deep and donate whatever you can, as often as you can. The democracy you save may be your own.
