Dear rabble readers,
I’ve been writing for rabble.ca since 2008 because rabble is a valuable source of information and a critical space for discussion and debate in Canadian media. It upholds the work of authentic journalism and grassroots social movements.
Mainstream media is less and less interested in reporting on challenging information and opinions, leaving key issues that matter to us out of the political discourse. Opinions that are not aligned with official positions and the dominant narrative would be completely ignored if it wasn’t for independent journalism.
rabble offers a platform for a variety of opinions — from dissenting critiques to thought-provoking ideas, amplifying the hard work of often underrepresented voices and stories. I’m proud to have my voice included.
That is why I am writing to ask you to support rabble’s ambitious annual fundraiser. rabble reports on the issues that matter to all Canadians, and this is only possible with the generous support from people like you – please join our community of dedicated and passionate change makers.
If you are already a monthly supporter or have recently donated, on behalf of everyone at rabble I want to thank you for your generosity and ongoing commitment to independent journalism. If you can afford to make an additional gift today, you will help broaden rabble’s reach even further in 2022.
The current economic climate makes it extremely difficult for independent media to survive. Constantly challenging mainstream stories or bringing new voices and angles to readers is hard work and yet rabble does it daily and reaches hundreds of thousands of readers — all of this is only possible because of people like you who pitch in to make real change.
Every contribution, no matter how small, will make a difference. And this is why I believe it is important for you to support rabble by not only reading their quality journalism, but by supporting and contributing to it.
rabble.ca is not simply an information website, where you read the information and then surf away. rabble is a community of activists, journalists, educators, politicians…ready to challenge you, inform you, educate you and share with you the dream of a better society.
