Did you know Current is an LLC? That makes us a small business. I invite you to give this little magazine/website some love tomorrow on “small business Saturday.”
Since we launched in April 2021, Current has continued to attract readers and high quality writers. Our editorial team is growing and we have some new things we hope to roll out in the new year. We are proud of the work we are doing here and want to continue to provide a space for those interested in the American project. Our patrons not only support us for our strong content, but most of them are committed to our vision of democratic life–an approach to civil discourse that celebrates diverse voices while doing our best to avoid the cultural warfare that undermines the bonds of friendship, neighborhood, and national community.
Read our mission statement here.
We believe that “little magazines” like Current can make a small contribution to our civic life and we hope you do as well.
Once again I am reminded of the words of James Weinstein, the founding editor of In These Times: “When I founded In These Times I thought I was going to be an editor, but I discovered that to keep it I had to become a beggar.” Indeed, we need more supporters to continue our civic vocation and expand our content. Would you consider helping us fulfill our mission by becoming a patron of Current?
