Established in 1990, The New Press is a not-for-profit publishing house operated editorially in the public interest. The New Press is committed to publishing in innovative ways works of educational, cultural, and community value that, despite their intellectual merits, may be deemed insufficiently profitable by commercial publishers. Like PBS and NPR as they were originally conceived, The New Press aims to provide ideas and viewpoints under-represented in the mass media. The New Press is also dedicated to using the literary arts both to serve the not-for-profit sector, and to leverage social and political change.
Support from the Cultures of Resistance Network contributed to important upgrades and enhancements to The New Press’s communications efforts so that the organization may continue to serve the non-profit community in a meaningful and professional way.
