Empower independence

Chicago Public Square’s off until Monday, June 12—except you’ll get the usual weekly news quiz, courtesy of The Conversation, this Friday.

Meanwhile, you know what keeps Square returning after vacations?

Readers whose financial support makes clear how much they value this service.

And for the next two weeks, you can spread that support even further—through the annual Chicago Independent Media Alliance fundraiser that begins today.

Your single donation through June 19 benefits all the members of this coalition of local storytellers—including Square—and helps ensure that thousands of Chicagoans’ voices will be heard.
