Put more eyes on Lafayette

👀 The Current gives Lafayette the attention it deserves. Our reporting helps readers connect the dots, understand how and why our community works — and how it can get better.

That’s because we believe in Lafayette and its potential to be a place where everyone can prosper.

Help us produce more journalism that works for Lafayette with a donation. Every dollar goes to producing local, nonprofit journalism that serves the Hub City and Hub Citizens.
