Our independent progressive American media collaboration at the COP15 climate summit in Copenhagen this week has worked really well, and I've had a lot of fun being a part of it. The group that met for beers in the Nyhavn neighborhood on Wednesday night (we all knew each other through bylines and emails, but hadn't yet met face to face) included journalists, editors and videographers from In These Times, TheUptake, The Nation, Mother Jones, Grist, and more.

Be one of the first
Help kick off the new era of In These Times! Without a media that brings people together and creates a written record of the struggles of workers, their voices will be fragmented and forgotten.
The mission of In These Times is to be that written record, and to guide and grow those movements.
We have a lot of work ahead of us, and that work starts today. Early support is the most valuable support, and that’s why we’re asking you to pitch in now. If you are excited for this new era of In These Times, please make a donation today.
