This week, Mark White of Plebity had the chance to meet with Scott Costen, Nova Scotia based journalist at The Sidebar to discuss our Free Speech Fund and the political vision behind Plebity. The Sidebar is a progressive, independent media platform that is part of a growing ecosystem of genuinely progressive, independent platforms which reject the conformity of much of what passes for current leftist discourse. We hope everyone will read the article and check out The Sidebar.

Last week Plebity awarded its most recent Free Speech Fund grant to Valerie Pelletier. Plebity thanks Jodi Shaw for her generous donation to our Free Speech Fund which makes our support for individuals like Valerie possible.
In February of 2020, just as the COVID-19 pandemic was reaching Canada, a large Montreal women’s agency fired Valérie Pelletier because of allegedly “transphobic” posts on her personal Facebook account.
The Plebity Free Speech Fund has awarded an initial grant of $1300 for Marguerite Stern, a French feminist who has been an activist in the trenches for many years. This will be our first fundraising campaign.
Members of our Patreon site reviewed the details of Marguerite's story and voted to move forward to award the grant to Marguerite, who after more than a decade of feminist activism is out of work and in need of a new living space.
In 2019 Marguerite began a campaign of posters put up in the streets to publicize the issue of femicide in France. The campaign spread to cities throughout the country and she has become a familiar name and face in France. She was just featured in the French version of National Geographic Magazine to illustrate the word justice - see the image above.
Most recently, Marguerite has been severely targeted and harassed by gender identity ideologues for her woman centered activism.
