Joe Biden, Kamala Harris, and the American people have won a historic victory by ousting the white supremacist and fascist in the White House. The transition is on, despite Trump’s refusal to concede and the GOP’s effort to cripple the new administration.

It is a new day, but the threat to democracy remains. The ability to fight the raging pandemic, the desperate economic situation millions face, climate crisis, and structural inequality and to win a path to citizenship for millions of immigrants, will take continued broad people’s unity under new and very difficult circumstances.

People’s World is in the middle of the fight. During the 2020 elections, we provided cutting-edge, partisan working-class, and revolutionary journalism. We tried to provide political clarity to counter the propaganda and lies of the right-wing propaganda ecosystem.

We couldn’t have done it without your support. Celebrate the election victory and the indispensable role played by People’s World by donating!

People’s World produced approximately 800 election-related articles that informed, inspired, and told the stories of the grassroots voter mobilization to elect Biden and Harris.

We told the stories of our multi-racial working class and democratic movements to safeguard voting rights, for climate justice, labor and immigrant solidarity, and against racism, misogyny, homophobia, and science denial.

It is no exaggeration to say People’s World reached millions of people this past year – 3 million to be exact. And we increased return readership to approximately 200,000 while launching an exciting new podcast, “Beyond the Page.”

People’s World will be in the center of the fight ahead. We need to reach millions more to help win a people’s agenda. The nation is entering the “dark winter” of the pandemic, tens of millions have exhausted unemployment benefits, threatened with starvation, evictions, and utility shutoffs.

We need to grow our audience to counter the right-wing propaganda eco-system that will continue to push GOP obstruction, nourish a fascist movement, and influence tens of millions of people.

The political universe now shifts to the U.S. Senate runoffs in Georgia. Donate so People’s World sends a reporter to cover the on-the-ground voter mobilization.

Unlike mainstream news media like the New York Times, Chicago Tribune, and Washington Post, no one pays to read our articles on a daily basis. We are proud to be entirely funded by our readers and supporters.

These are perilous times, but we are counting on you to do whatever you can to support People’s World. Please consider signing up online for a monthly donation. Or you can mail in a check or money order to:
