From The Frontlines

Christopher Hayes

Our most important fundraising drive of the year is now underway. After you're done reading, please consider making a tax-deductible donation to ensure that In These Times can continue publishing in the year ahead.

Suffice it to say I'm pretty damn busy in my new position cutting turf, calling volunteers, and getting the troops fired up.However, I do want to maintain this blog throughout the next six weeks, or as long as it's feasible, so keep checking back for updates. I think I'll shift towards a Liberal Oasis style blog where I put up one post every morning.One note: All that hype about Dean "bringing new people into the system" turns out to be shockingly true. To wit: I just spoke with a volunteer who drove in from Iowa to come and knock on doors in the outskirts of Madison. How'd she first get involved in politics? Howard Dean.

Support progressive media

As a nonprofit, reader-supported publication, In These Times depends on donations from people like you to continue publishing. Our final, end-of-year fundraising drive accounts for nearly half of our total budget. That’s why this fundraising drive is so important.

If you are someone who depends on In These Times to learn what is going on in the movements for social, racial, environmental and economic justice, the outcome of this fundraising drive is important to you as well.

How many readers like you are able to contribute between now and December 31 will determine the number of stories we can report, the resources we can put into each story and how many people our journalism reaches. If we come up short, it will mean making difficult cuts at time when we can least afford to do so.

If it is within your means, please make a tax-deductible donation today, to ensure that In These Times can continue publishing in the year ahead.
