Since the first issue of the Daily Worker came off the press in 1924, this press has been in the battles of the U.S. working class and people’s movements. From the battles of the unemployed and the campaigns to organize the CIO in the 1930s-40s, through the civil rights and peace movements of the 1950s, ’60s and ’70s to the struggles that have given us the “new” labor movement, to the people’s upsurge that elected our first African American president, and now the growing movements for a progressive, people’s agenda – the 99% – People’s World and Mundo Popular have been there.
People’s World is part of the American independent and free press tradition, and now the growing netroots movement, in the U.S. Funded exclusively by readers – no corporate money, People’s World employs a small staff, but has a mighty network of volunteers, and together proudly produce what many call “the best working-class coverage in the country.”
Memberships: People’s World is a member of the International Labor Communications Association and is indexed in the Alternative Press Index. Staff members belong to The Newspaper Guild/CWA, AFL-CIO.
