About Us

About Plebity

The word ‘Plebity’ refers to everyday people, and in this spirit the organization was created by a small team from a kitchen table.

We started Plebity because we wanted to provide a platform for real issues and real people to have a voice—especially those voices that are so often silenced by mainstream media.

Plebity is a California 501(c)(3) corporation.

Plebity is a platform for articles, in depth interviews, and podcasts.

We are also the home of the Plebity Free Speech Fund, which exists to aid those who have been fired or otherwise significantly harmed as a result of their speech.

We believe in…

We believe in the necessity of organizing around issues of class and fighting for economic equality, environmental justice and against endless wars.

We recognize and abhor the reality of historic and enduring racism and bigotry while believing identity politics has created an enormous rift on the left that has only served the powerful elites. This division has profoundly distracted us from uniting to challenge power and create real change that will make everyone’s lives better.

We support workplace democracy and are against oligarchic control of society by a small number of monopolistic corporations.

We believe in reclaiming certain core values for the left, such as free speech. That means even speech we don’t necessarily agree with.

We oppose both private and state censorship.

We have deep concerns about tech company monopolies and their control of our online lives. We support efforts to develop and educate around alternative software and ways to resist surveillance capitalism.

We believe in financial transparency.

We accept the necessity of sometimes working with others who may only agree with us on a specific issue.
