Can you help out Socialist Worker?

December 20, 2018

It’s been a challenging year in many ways and an inspiring one in others, but we’re proud of what we’ve been able to provide for our readers — including a brand new and vastly improved website — over the past 12 months. Now we want to ask for your help.

DONALD TRUMP has been president for almost two years, but it feels like a lot longer than that.

Here at, we’ve focused on helping readers make sense of the daily deluge of hate coming from the White House, while shining a spotlight on the organizations and movements posing a challenge to his agenda.

We’ve chronicled the struggles of immigrants who resisted Trump’s wall and of women who’ve spoken out against sexual violence and oppression. We’ve written about the many people who’ve marched against climate change and war. We’ve stood with trans people against Trump’s attacks. And we’ve celebrated the teachers and hotel workers who have led waves of strikes from coast to coast.

Now we’re asking if you can contribute financially to our project. Clicking here will take you to the PayPal website, where you can make a contribution in any amount, using a debit or credit card, or a PayPal account.

We’ve never accepted a dime of corporate money, but as you might imagine, none has been offered either. That’s because we stand with anyone and everyone angry at a system that generate billions for the 1 Percent, poverty for more than half of humanity and a dangerous disregard for the planet we all inhabit.

In the past year, we redesigned our website, making it easier to find stories related to whatever you’re reading, search our archives and use our site on mobile devices. You’ll also all the episodes of the popular Better Off Red podcast. That redesign took a lot of work — and while the results made it all worthwhile, we need your help to start preparing for the next round of innovations to propel us forward.

So as you consider your holiday season gifts and donations, we hope that you’ll find a way to make a contribution, large or small, to Socialist Worker. For more than 40 years, we’ve relied on the generosity of readers like you. At a time when the demands on our movement are greater than ever, we are seeking out new ways to fulfill that responsibility. Your contribution is crucial to our success.

If you click here, you can go straight to the PayPal website to make a donation. If you want to start from the website, go to our donation page to get started. We thank you for your support for our common struggle.
