Our trip through 2017: rabble.ca releases annual report

Please chip in to support more articles like this. Support rabble.ca for as little as $5 per month!

While we can't have everyone over to show slides of our journey through 2017, we can invite you to peruse our annual report! 

Every year, rabble releases a comprehensive annual report to share what we've been doing and how we spend the money we receive from the community and our sustaining partners. You can find our last 12 years of reports here, including 2017's report. While there are no regulations that require us to publish our annual report publicly, we feel it important to be open about how we operate and are proud of what we accomplish with a budget that is a fraction of similar organizations.

As you'll see in our report, rabble took on 2017 with a fury! A year with myriad reasons to take to the streets in protest, we were with you through all of it. This year as always, rabble remain independent, fierce, and unapologetically committed to exploring the perspectives of progressive communities in Canada and around the world.

If you like what you see in these pages, and if you want to support our work, please don't hesitate -- you can do it right here!

Thank you for reading this story…

More people are reading rabble.ca than ever and unlike many news organizations, we have never put up a paywall – at rabble we’ve always believed in making our reporting and analysis free to all, while striving to make it sustainable as well. Media isn’t free to produce. rabble’s total budget is likely less than what big corporate media spend on photocopying (we kid you not!) and we do not have any major foundation, sponsor or angel investor. Our main supporters are people and organizations -- like you. This is why we need your help. You are what keep us sustainable.

rabble.ca has staked its existence on you. We live or die on community support -- your support! We get hundreds of thousands of visitors and we believe in them. We believe in you. We believe people will put in what they can for the greater good. We call that sustainable.

So what is the easy answer for us? Depend on a community of visitors who care passionately about media that amplifies the voices of people struggling for change and justice. It really is that simple. When the people who visit rabble care enough to contribute a bit then it works for everyone.

And so we’re asking you if you could make a donation, right now, to help us carry forward on our mission. Make a donation today.
