Information is power. Our mission at Portside is to seek out and to provide information that empowers you -- that empowers the left. Every day we search hundreds of sources to connect you with the most interesting, striking and useful material. Just once a year we appeal to you to contribute to make it possible to continue this work. Please help.


Thank you, dear Portside reader!

We Portside moderators send you our heartfelt thanks for responding generously to our annual appeal. You are one of nearly 350 people who contributed $26,000+. We don't do a lot of fundraising - just this once-a-year request - so your response to this appeal is our life blood. It not only supports us financially, but energizes us to continue to bring you critical reporting, analysis and discussion from a left perspective across the country and around the globe.

We all know that at this moment everything is on the table. This year has been astounding, sometimes inspiring, and ultimately menacing. It gave lightning flashes of what a people's movement could accomplish. But the election outcome is ultimately brutal -- a nightmare President and administration packed with white nationalists, ultra-billionaires and militarists that threaten the existence of the entire democratic system. No one, no group and no institution is safe.
The massive post-inaugural marches and huge, instant demonstrations and grassroots organizing resist this malignant politics. We promise to keep these and other resistance fronts in the spotlight.
Thanks to your support, Portside can continue to share progressive news and actions that keep you informed and motivated. When your friends look for actual alternative facts, please refer them to Portside!
None of us makes any money on this venture; all donations go to the project. If you have not yet contributed, or want to join the ranks of our sustainers, click here to make a contribution of whatever amount you choose on our secure server.
We are navigating treacherous currents together. Thanks again from the left side of the ship - the port side.
