Shadowproof invites you to become a Shadowproof member to help keep a tradition of excellent independent journalism and community activism alive. The purpose of the Shadowproof membership program is to provide a stable system of financial support for our work each month, which will allow us to pay talented, out-of-work and struggling journalists and build an ideal home for their work.
Shadowproof launched on August 2. We are a movement publication, which builds relationships with grassroots organizations and elevates voices from within those groups. We need your support to publish the work of a diverse range of independent journalists committed to exposing abuses of power in government and corporations. Together, we can build on Firedoglake’s legacy.
Named after temporary prisons setup for rebellious workers, The Bullpen will seek to reveal and explore the underlying power dynamics within the US economy and political system — the forces shaping how ‘We The People’ live our lives. This is not the place for the latest campaign gossip and ephemera, but do not be surprised to see some familiar names featured in the quest to illuminate the dark connections between moneyed interests and those with more formal powers.
We hope Shadowproof will be both a website and a community, where members feel empowered to engage in passionate but respectful debate with journalists, editors and staff on every article. We want every reader to have a stake in our website. Here’s how we’re building that community.
