Many Ways to Support Between The Lines' Bringing Progressive Voices to More Listeners

With Google's, Facebook's and the Trump administration's attacks on "fake news" that threaten long-standing, independent media resources like Between The Lines, we are facing new challenges. From keeping up with technological changes, to the the FCC plans to dismantle Net Neutrality and allow right-wing Sinclair TV (aka "Trump TV") in 72 percent of U.S. households, we need your support as we continue to raise another $1000 by the end of this year.

Please donate now to help keep progressive voices and viewpoints on the airwaves. See our thank you gifts for your donation.

"Yemen has already passed 900,000 cases (of cholera) in just a few months. ... So, when the UN says it's the world's worst humanitarian crisis, it's not an exaggeration. Millions and millions of people are already at risk of starvation."

– Shireen Al-Adeimi, Harvard Graduate School student originally from Yemen, on the need to end the air and sea blockade. Before the war, Yemen had imported 90 percent of its food.
