Dissent is a leading "little magazine" of politics and ideas. Founded in 1954, it has been the political home for three generations of left-wing critics and journalists, from Irving Howe to Sarah Jaffe. The magazine appears four times a year in print. It also publishes several articles a week online and hosts the biweekly labor podcast Belabored. Dissent strives to publish the very best in political argument and takes pride in cultivating the next generation of labor journalists, cultural critics, and political polemicists.
A 2015 grant from the Cultures of Resistance Network supported Dissent’s ongoing coverage of US social movements, including Black Lives Matter, Fight for $15, and the climate justice movement.
