On our 25th anniversary, we are launching a voluntary membership programme.
Become a member of The New Humanitarian to support our journalism and become more involved in our community.
As a member, you’ll be able to get involved in events like our TNH Readers’ Salon, a kind of book club for humanitarian discussion that brings together TNH readers from around the world to meet, chat, and share thoughts and ideas. The first TNH Readers’ Salon, which took place in August, gave members a chance to discuss with TNH Director Heba Aly and Editor Jessica Alexander whether the aid sector is at a turning point.
Click the + sign below to hear some of the highlights from the discussion.
- Members will have an opportunity to take on a deeper role within our community, gain a closer insight into our world, and shape our journalism, via:
- A members’ newsletter (read a previous members’ newsletter)
- Access to our editorial team
- Informal meet-ups (post-COVID-19 of course!)
- An online members’ forum and regular Zoom calls to provide feedback on story ideas and TNH strategy
- Invites to our TNH Reader Salons for enlightening discussions about humanitarianism
- Join us
Why membership? Why now?
As COVID-19 has devastating consequences around the world, and misinformation spreads like fire, it is even more crucial that people have access to reliable information about crises. At the same time, the economic crisis caused by the new coronavirus has hit media organisations hard: many have had to fire journalists or shut down their newspapers altogether.
Now, more than ever, we need your support to ensure we can continue providing responsible, authoritative reporting both about this global pandemic, and about the other crises that it is now overshadowing.
By joining The New Humanitarian, you will help us build on 25 years of rich history that has shaped the agenda to improve the lives of people affected by conflicts, disasters, and other humanitarian crises.
We’re asking readers to support us with $5, 10, or $15 USD per month and join our community.
Your membership means The New Humanitarian can continue, and deepen, our coverage of the world’s humanitarian crises, even when mainstream media’s attention is elsewhere.
Alternatively, you can also donate to support our journalism without becoming a member.
Our founding members took up the call to support our work and join our community early and whole-heartedly. We are incredibly grateful to those on this list as well as those who chose to support anonymously.
