Here Comes Another Round Of Excellent Freelance Reporting At Shadowproof

Shadowproof will soon publish another exciting round of freelance reporting, but we need your help to pay our writers a decent wage for their work.

Can you donate $20 so we can pay writers to contribute to Shadowproof?

We’ve been busy curating important reporting for you at Shadowproof over the last few months. Kevin and I have covered Venezuela and California prisons respectively. We also recently published:

—On-the-ground movement reporting from Aaron Cynic on the issues activists care most about in the Chicago mayoral race;

—A report from Tom Secker, featuring documents showing the U.S. Army gave massive support to the “Long Road Home” miniseries on National Geographic, possibly committing fraud;

—Health care policy analysis from Jon Walker, explaining how our definition of the “cheapest” health care reform plan impacts policy;

—A report from Michael Sainato on how the President Donald Trump’s administration bullied Vietnam, Cambodia, and Laos into accepting refugees facing deportation.

Your donations went directly to these writers to compensate them for their work. Anything leftover paid for Shadowproof’s server bills, email, and other costs.

We run a low-budget operation, but we need your help to replenish our funds to pay for another batch of independent reporting. Can you help?

Please donate $20 or more to fund freelance reporting at Shadowproof.

By the way, if you join as a Shadowproof member, you can contribute to our long-term stability (and cease receiving these annoying fundraising emails) for just a few dollars a month.

$5/month gets you a Shadowproof tote bag and access to our members-only chatroom.

$9/month gets you all of the above AND access to our weekly member newsletter.

If that’s too much of a commitment, you can give $3/month and we’ll appreciate your support no less! And a one-time donation is always helpful.

Thank you so much for reading, sharing, and supporting our work. We could not do this without readers like you.
