Help Us Reach Our Goal
Our work is having a national impact. The New York Times has cited our work and one of our photos got over a million views on twitter!
Between, 3 last-minute plane tickets to cover the expanding strike ($950), over a week of hotel rooms ($800), paying a camerman for a week ($1000) as well as food,gas, and beer, we have been able to provide coverage that no one else has. However, this type of coverage is expensive and we need your help to provide it.
The national media once again is following our lead and we wanna do more time on the road than any other outlet.
We were the first national outlet to cover the news of the brewing West Virginia teachers’ strike back in December 2017. Thanks to reader donations, we were one of a handful of outlets with a reporter on the ground in all five states with teachers’ strike last year: in West Virginia, Oklahoma, Arizona, Kentucky and North Carolina.
We were on the ground when the UAW was defeated at Nissan’s plant in Canton, Mississippi in the summer of 2017; filing more stories than any other outlet in the US. We were there on the ground in Chattanooga when the UAW was defeated earlier this summer; once again filing more stories than another other national outlets.
We intend to lead like we always do on the General Motors strike, but we need your help as readers to cover our travel costs.
