“The Squad” Joins Town Hall With Grassroots Activists on Critical Issues of 2020

Four of the most progressive voices in the U.S. Congress in years discuss the importance of building a strong movement.

The live streamed event will proudly feature four of the bravest and most progressive voices for change the U.S. Congress has seen in decades: Reps. Ayanna Pressley, Ilhan Omar, Rashida Tlaib and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez as well as prominent artists, activists and organizers.

We are pleased to partner with the award-winning team at Democracy Now! To publicize this event. Author and Democracy Now co-host Nermeen Shaikh will moderate.

We will also be joined by activists hosting watch parties across the country.

The Rising Majority believes that democracy thrives when our people are organized. We also know that in order to build and maintain the kind of democracy we need, we have to build a powerful, more aligned movement. Join us as we build our own squad and call on millions across the country to #BuildYourSquad and #SquadUp.

We need to update you on where Truthout stands.

To be brutally honest, Truthout is behind on our fundraising goals for the year. There are a lot of reasons why. We’re dealing with broad trends in our industry, trends that have led publications like Vice, BuzzFeed, and National Geographic to make painful cuts. Everyone is feeling the squeeze of inflation. And despite its lasting importance, news readership is declining.

To ensure we stay out of the red by the end of the year, we have a long way to go. Our future is threatened.

We’ve stayed online over two decades thanks to the support of our readers. Because you believe in the power of our work, share our transformative stories, and give to keep us going strong, we know we can make it through this tough moment.

If you value what we do and what we stand for, please consider making a tax-deductible donation to support our work.
