Searchlight does not follow the conventional business model for newspapers. It does not sell advertisements or subscriptions; instead, Searchlight New Mexico is supported by generous donations from readers like you. By contributing to Searchlight, you can support its mission and ensure that it continues to shine light on the issues that impact New Mexicans most.
