From healthcare to education to clean water, the things that are owed to members of a democracy are under threat today. Our new issue explores the question of public goods and what we can do to save them.
From healthcare to education to clean water, public goods—things that are owed to members of a democracy—are increasingly threatened in the age of Trump. What can we do about it now and how can we safeguard the future? This video, based on our new print issue, The President's House Is Empty, considers these public goods: what they are, how to provide them, and how to ensure equitable access. What is at stake is not only what we owe each other, but who we are.
Help fund the next generation of Black journalists, editors, and publishers.
Boston Review’s Black Voices in the Public Sphere Fellowship is designed to address the profound lack of diversity in the media by providing aspiring Black media professionals with training, mentorship, networking opportunities, and career development workshops. The program is being funded with the generous support of Derek Schrier, chair of Boston Review’s board of advisors, the Ford Foundation, and the Carnegie Corporation of New York, but we still have $50,000 left to raise to fully fund the fellowship for the next two years. To help reach that goal, if you make a tax-deductible donation to our fellowship fund through August 31 it will be matched 1:1, up to $25,000—so please act now to double your impact.
