The Rapidian celebrated its five-year anniversary on Tuesday, September 23, at the SiTE:LAB 2014 ArtPrize venue, The Morton GR. The evening brought in guests of all ages to celebrate the hyperlocal news source and its commitment to citizen journalism and community engagement.

Nearly $4,000 was raised that evening to further The Rapidian's mission and continued commitment to provide the community.

The Rapidian, a program of the 501(c)3 nonprofit Community Media Center, relies on the community’s support to help cover the cost of training reporters and publishing content.

We need your help.
