The word "socialism" is in the air at the end of 2015. One big reason is Bernie Sanders' presidential campaign, which has energized millions of people who tired of the same conventional political candidates, pushing right-wing to really, really right-wing policies. But in world of ware and escalating violence, of oppression and repression, of exploitation and staggering inequality, there is a urgent desire for an alternative to a capitalist system that puts people and the fate of the planet behind profits.

We think is an important part of making that rebuilding that alternative and making it relevant to the struggles of today. Our contributors have sent us reports from the front lines of many struggles--against racism and police violence; for a $15 an hour minimum wage and a union; in solidarity with immigrants and refugees; against the tide of war and anti-Islam hate; for climate justice and a sustainable planet. You've read analysis and commentary on the pressing political and social questions we all confront, plus stories that introduce the hidden history of the working class struggles and the ideas of the Marxist tradition that puts forward the vision of a different world.

Now we're asking for your help--your financial help to keep going and growing. If you can spare a donation during this holiday season to help assure our future, we thank you.

It goes without saying that SW doesn't have corporate backing or big-money donors. But keeping those articles coming day after day and week after week costs money, nonetheless. We depend on the dedication and commitment of our readers to make sure that alternative voices like ours get heard.

We have big hopes and plans for the new year. But we won't be able to accomplish those goals without additional financial resources. So we're asking for your generosity now. If you can give a contribution to matter how big--we would greatly appreciate it.
