Nation of Change

“Progressive Journalism for Positive Action” is the byline of non-profit NationofChange.

The mission of NationofChange is “to help people create a more compassionate, responsible, and value-driven world, powered by communities that focus on positive solutions to social and economic problems.” They “strive to accomplish this mission through unbiased, independent journalism combined with practical, real-world activism in order to create real-world actionable strategies for change.”

“NationofChange was formed in 2009 by Donna Luca, an active philanthropist with 25 years’ experience in educational and environmental causes. She recognized that concerned people needed an easy way to get informed and involved to make changes on the issues that mattered most to them.”

“To address this need, Ms. Luca brought savvy technologists and intrepid independent journalists together to shape NationofChange. Today, funded entirely by mostly small reader donations, NationofChange provides a progressive platform that empowers individuals to create on-the-ground social, environmental, and economic change, one action at a time.”

They deal with the following issues:

NationofChange has a three pronged strategy for change: journalism, community and activism.

They are supported solely by individual donations, most of them small – they accept no advertising or corporate financing. They are currently trying to raise $30,000 for operating expenses and are still more than $17,000 short of that goal.

If you value their email updates you may want to make a donation as I just did. With your qualifying donation, they will send you Jason Louv’s book, Monsanto vs. the World: The Monsanto Protection Act, GMOs and Our Genetically Modified Future, as their thank-you gift.
