We need your help. The coronavirus crisis in Portland is a major threat to the Mercury’s ability to keep the city informed. We pride ourselves on having navigated many storms in the world of independent local media, but this time is different. 90% of our revenue—from advertising, ticketing fees, and our own events—is directly tied to people getting together in groups. The coronavirus situation has virtually eliminated this income all at once. At a time when the city needs local coverage more than ever, we’re asking for your help to support continued coverage or everything happening in Portland.
