Dear Reader,

When it comes to upholding progressive American values, most of our institutions are in decline, if not already defunct. It’s pretty clear that we can’t count on elected officials, the courts, the traditional press or the universities to hold the line against the corporatocracy.

What are we left with? We’ve got each other.

Civil disobedience, grassroots pressure at the local level, citizen media and face-to-face political organizing are our last best hope. We’re seeing people around the globe standing against austerity and corruption - and winning!

Help Truthout continue to be a catalyst for this type of change in America. We need your support in order to maintain our services - and we’re $8,500 away from meeting our goal for this fundraising drive. Your support is critical right now, as we strive to meet our goal and end our drive tonight!

Can you help us meet our budget by midnight?
