A decade ago, a collective of Israeli and Palestinian writers founded +972 Magazine with the goal of challenging the mainstream narrative on Israel-Palestine. From protests against the separation wall, to the devastating consequences of Israel’s blockade on Gaza, to the imprisonment and deportation of African asylum seekers, we have become the primary progressive source for news and analysis from Israel-Palestine.
Our commentary and on-the-ground reporting have informed millions of readers, including activists, journalists, researchers, and policymakers.
On the occasion of our 10-year anniversary, we are launching a membership program to sustain our work and its impact. Become a member of +972 Magazine today and join a growing community of people who care about independent journalism in Israel-Palestine.
In an era of global pandemic, mass movements against historical injustices, authoritarian leaders — from Trump to Bolsonaro to Netanyahu — and the annexation of the West Bank, independent journalism is more necessary than ever.
With the help of readers like you, we have been able to publish more than 9,000 stories, start a podcast, and shift from a volunteer model to a professional newsroom of four editors that pays freelance contributors for their work. This allows us to dig deeper and bring to light injustice, while spotlighting a diversity of voices and promoting change on the ground.
This kind of work takes skill, persistence, and above all, the support of our readers. Our mission is to ensure that our crucial journalism continues to reach millions of people each year. That’s why we will never put our work behind a paywall. As a fiercely independent nonprofit, our newsroom is not beholden to advertisers and we rely on donations from generous individuals.
By becoming a member, you will receive a special quarterly newsletter with behind-the-scenes access to the work that goes into making +972, special online workshops and Q&A sessions with our team members, and an opportunity to participate in our new feedback system, which will allow you to share your thoughts and suggestions for stories you would like us to cover. Most importantly, you will be joining a community that believes in using truth to fight all forms of apartheid, supremacy, and inequality.
There is still so much work to be done and we cannot do it alone. If you believe in what we’re doing and want to build the foundation for the next 10 years, we ask you to join us by becoming a member of +972 Magazine today.
