We're the creators of the District Sentinel, a Washington, DC-based left-wing news cooperative launched in December 2014. 

In the summer of 2015, we asked our readers and supporters for help, and raised over $10,000 on IndieGoGo, to assist with our operations. We very much appreciated and were touched by the support. Please consider helping us keep the lights on, once more and into the future, through our Patreon, where you will also receive awards for helping out (a t-shirt; special podcasts, etc.). You get more than just the satisfaction of assisting a bad-ass lefty news outfit.

For the past few months, we've been expanding beyond our print operations, and devoting more resources to our podcasting arm: District Sentinel Radio. We're currently producing a nightly newscast (Monday-Thursday), plus bonus interviews with journalists and activists throughout the week.

We're setting up this Patreon platform in order to one day be fully sustainable. Until we get there, however, there are some shorter-term goals we hope to accomplish with your help, including more video productions and recording our podcasts at live venues around the country (or at least the Eastern seaboard). 

That's the pitch. Thanks for your support!

Forever in DC, so you don't have to be,
Sam Sacks and Sam Knight
The District Sentinel News Co-op.
