Calling all citizens

Jessica Clark

Check out a new blog by In These Times writer and TV commentator Flavia Colgan, Citizen Hunter. Flavia writes: I have been blessed in life to have had the opportunity to meet many "important" people. Citizen Hunter is a testament to the people who inspire me the most, far more than politicians, celebrities, or media notables. The group I listen to with rapt attention. The group I think of when writing, talking on TV, or giving a speech. My "team of experts" that I turn to, are the great people across this country whose names you may not know. People who have been generous enough to let me into their lives and who care enough about their fellow man to always ask, what can I do to help?

Before you go

Reader donations, many as small as just $5, are what fund the work of writers like this—and keep our content free and accessible to everyone. But when donations slow down, it puts our future reporting at risk. To get back on track, we're aiming to add 400 contributions from readers by the end of the month.

It only takes a minute to donate. Will you chip in before the deadline?
