Changing America

Changing America was formed during the anti-globalization struggles of the late 1990s and early 2000s by the Communist Party of the USA (CPUSA). Their media presented a pro-working-class communist analysis of social movements. Changing America worked to organize coalitions of different independent and oppositional media groups to protect freedom of the press and to fight corporate domination of television. During the Democratic and Republican conventions of the late 1990s and 2000s, it broadcast live daily coverage, working in collaboration with grassroots media groups. Changing America projects focused on class struggles combined with political commentaries and analysis to fight what they saw as the increasingly solidifying global media power concentrated in only a few corporations. They argued that public education, women’s equality, and civil rights for minorities and LGBTQ communities were key for democracy to flourish. Their motto was “fight for the right for the revolution to be publicized and televised.”
