Dear Toward Freedom Reader,
With political turmoil, natural disasters, and government crackdowns on human rights increasing around the world, Toward Freedom has decided to GROW – to expand our international coverage, bring in new writers, and double our readership. Please donate to TF today to support this expansion.
We are doing this because in the face of these crises, we see the urgent need to hold the powerful accountable and spotlight people’s voices and victories in the global south and other struggling communities.
We want you to join us in expanding our reach. Your financial contribution will enable us to move forward with our exciting plans.
You are already familiar with the litany of crises facing the global community today: rising natural disasters, the threat of nuclear war, and abuses of power in Washington.
And the corporate-owned media? They just give these stories the same superficial billing as celebrity gossip. They largely ignore the structural issues that underlie our leading global problems.
In contrast, Toward Freedom’s reporters, based around the world, uncover and share stories you won’t hear anywhere else. Recently, we carried exclusive reports on:
- Western complicity in the Congo’s mining conflicts
- The struggle for Kurdish independence
- New mobilizations for political justice in Argentina
- Indigenous resistance to oil pipelines in North America
Toward Freedom produces journalism that provides a lens to understand the pressing issues of our day. We’re proud of that.
But in today’s political climate, it isn’t enough.
We’ve set goals for next year to broaden the issues and countries that we cover, expand our international network of writers, strengthen our online and social media presence, and produce deeper investigations. Alongside those ambitious plans, we’re embarking on an intensive effort to gather the public and financial support needed for this growth.
We are turning to you as part of our community of readers who care about the deeper stories and analysis, the stories of resistance and social justice.
Please make a donation to Toward Freedom this year.
Make a donation today that expresses your commitment to the communities whose voices and stories we carry.
In peace and solidarity,
President, Toward Freedom Board
