The Commoner is a non-profit, non-partisan news outlet dedicated to reflecting the opinions of the common people. The Commoner serves as a platform for these voices by focusing on rigorous reporting and compassionate dialogue that transcends partisan ties and media bias. We discuss political, economic, and social issues in a respectful and open-minded manner. We hope that reflecting a diversity of opinions will help to promote empathy and understanding – the building blocks of a more inclusive global community.

Purpose

Our organization has the twofold goal of democratizing the media and building a more compassionate society. We train people from all backgrounds to become citizen journalists because we believe the media should not be controlled by the wealthy. People from across the globe write for our all-volunteer organization on local, national, and global issues. In building a more democratic media landscape, we hope to enable people to discuss political, economic, and social issues in a respectful and open-minded manner. We believe that the current media landscape minimizes open dialogue at the expense of the average person, so we hope to encourage conversations that promote compassion and compromise.
