Dear Friends and Supporters,
At the end of each year, we look back on the past year and plan for the year ahead. Our goal is to figure out what worked, what didn’t work, and how we can adjust, improve, and change.
One of the most challenging and fascinating aspects of media political work is staying ahead of the phenomenal pace of distribution changes. I still remember when we decided to take a risk and experiment with this new thing called YouTube — and when we committed some of our limited resources to a platform called Facebook.
Equally challenging are all of the adjustments as the political landscape continues to change. We have to continuously ask ourselves a few key questions. What can we do that is not being done? What can we do that will help the progressive movement in general? How can we help connect the dots between issues? And how can we provide support and media tools to our progressive allies?
So take a look at our 2013 Annual Report, which includes specific summaries from the War Costs, Cuéntame, and Beyond Bars teams. What do you think? Were we able to impact the way people talk, think, and engage on issues? Did we add value to the existing work of others? Were we able to continue to play a leading role in framing and initiating as we have done with Iraq for Sale, Walmart: The High Cost of Low Price, Rethink Afghanistan, and Koch Brothers Exposed?
Your support is invaluable to us and we welcome your thoughts, ideas, and suggestions.
Cheers to a productive and impactful year ahead,
Founder & President
