Congratulations to all the People’s World staff, without whose collective efforts no awards would be possible and to all supporters of the paper, without whose support there would be no People’s World.

People’s World has an enormous challenge ahead of it—to raise $200,000 from readers and supporters in 2023, including $125,000 during the Fund Drive, which runs from Feb. 1 to May 1.

Please donate to help People’s World reach our $200,000 goal. We appreciate whatever you can donate: $5, $10, $25, $50, $100, or more.

Reaching the goal ensures People’s World will not curtail efforts to reach, engage, mobilize, and ally with millions in the epic fight to defend U.S. constitutional democracy as the most immediate task and win the long-term vision of sustainable Bill of Rights socialism.
