This week, there was a presidential debate in which the candidates addressed climate change, gay rights, the war on drugs, Citizens United, drone strikes and poverty. Needless to say, it wasn’t Monday’s major-party showdown; it was Tuesday’s third-party debate in Chicago, hosted by Larry King and the Free and Equal Elections organization Barack Obama and Mitt Romney did not participate. Instead, the Green Party’s Jill Stein, the Justice Party’s Rocky Anderson, the Constitution Party’s Virgil Goode and the Libertarian Party’s Gary Johnson held forth on topics that went unaddressed in the major-party debates.

We surveyed thousands of readers and asked what they would like to see in a monthly giving program. Many of you expressed interest in magazine subscriptions, gift subscriptions, tote bags, events and books —and we’ve added all of those. Some of you said that cost was an issue, so we’ve kept our starting tier at just $5 a month—less than 17 cents a day.

Now, for the first time, we're offering three different levels of support, with unique rewards at each level, for you to choose from. Check out the new Sustainer program.
