Tired of Giving In

Tired of Giving In


On a day when the news on Afghanistan makes us tilt into a sense of
powerlessness, let us celebrate Rosa Parks, who on this day in 1955
refused to give up her seat on the bus for a white man, thus changing
history. The Rosa and Raymond Parks Institute for Self Development continues her legacy.

"I believe that everyone can make a difference in their lives." - Rosa Parks


Independent media has become the last firewall against government and corporate lies.   Yet, with frightening regularity, independent media sources are losing funding, closing down or being blacked out by Google and Facebook.  Never before has independent media been more endangered.  If you believe in Common Dreams, if you believe in people-powered independent media, please support our critical Winter campaign now and help us fight—with truths—against the lies that would smother our democracy. Please help keep Common Dreams alive and growing.
