We can't do this without your support!

The American Prospect strives to be a champion for informed discussion on progressive public policy. Our brand of independent, fact-checked reporting does not come cheap.

When you support the Prospect, your dollars go directly to our mission to cover concentrated corporate power, the financial industry, the labor movement, immigration, infrastructure, foreign policy, the disaster of neoliberalism, the climate crisis, and so much more. If it matters in progressive politics, the Prospect is — and will be — on top of it. But only with your help.
