Thank you for supporting the important work of The Independent! Your membership in Independent Pillars will get you some perks and goodies, invitations to members-only events, and other stuff that we think up as we go along, with your help.

Your support means that we can do a more thorough job covering the three counties and six towns—not to mention land grants and historic communities—that make up the East Mountains and Estancia Valley. Bringing the stories of this diverse region back to the communities is our core mission. From local government to interesting locals, from high school sports to arts and culture, from business features to comics, we’ve got something for everyone. Every week, we try to have at least one story that is only there to make you smile.

Take a look around this page to access your membership perks, and please let us know what you think.
