Is one allowed to ask for support on both Small Business Saturday and Giving Tuesday? I hope so. 🙂
Since we launched in April 2021, Current has continued to attract readers and high quality writers. Our editorial team is growing and we are excited about some new things rolling 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.
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?
Here is how you can support us:
