The Stakes Have Never Been Higher.

The nonprofit, independent journalism of Common Dreams needs your help. Our journalists are working harder than ever to bring you journalism that is essential to the survival of our democracy. But we can't do it without you. Please support our 2020 Mid-Year Campaign today:



The famed Boys Choir of Harlem, which for three decades gave kids
from New York City's poorest, toughest neighborhoods a chance to shape
new lives through music, has ceased
to exist. Beset by money problems, a sexual abuse case and a cover-up
scandal, alumni announced the choir's end at a Christmas concert at a
Harlem church.

"Tell the people - let it be known," said alumnus Terrance Wright. "There is no Boys and Girls Choir of Harlem."

This is the world we live in. This is the world we cover.

Because of people like you, another world is possible. There are many battles to be won, but we will battle them together—all of us. Common Dreams is not your normal news site. We don't survive on clicks. We don't want advertising dollars. We want the world to be a better place. But we can't do it alone. It doesn't work that way. We need you. If you can help today—because every gift of every size matters—please do. Without Your Support We Simply Don't Exist.
