  • Continuing our in-depth, local pandemic coverage through the summer and into the transition back to in-person school
  • Covering the Ward 6 and 9 CIty Council races and publishing voter education articles from The League of Women Voters
  • Partnering with the Semilla Center for Healing and the Arts to distribute The Phoenix of Phillips literary magazine, Volume VII
  • Moving to a more local printer to help with printing and delivery schedules
  • Working to expand paid positions, including the first business manager and website improver – Ben Heath!
  • Participating in community events as the post-vaccine world began to open up, including tables at the Phillips West Fall Festival and the American Swedish Institute Neighborhood Night. Look for us at upcoming neighborhood events!
  • Collaborating with artist and new alley designer Jessie Merriam on developing the distinctive visual feel of the alley

ELC Hopes and plans for 2022 and beyond –
