Together, we can change the world.
The Common Dreams news team works hard to bring you real news that matters—which is often about how the world is. But we also work hard to bring you the voices of visionaries who dream about how the world should be.
We believe that informed, inspired and activated people can change the world—and create a more sustainable, more just, and more peaceful future built on our common dreams.
But independent journalism and democracy itself have never been more needed yet more fragile and at risk than now. We must fight on. Please support our critical End-of-Year Campaign.

In this fight for our future, we must all rise together
