The InterActivist is a local, progressive, non-profit publication in Athens and has been serving as a local alternative to right-wing, commercial and corporate-owned media for over five years.
The InterActivist staff publishes the magazine independently with participation from the Ohio University student group InterAct along with funds from the Ohio University Student Activities Commission, the Campus Progress division of the Center for American Progress, reader donations, advertising revenue and fundraising events.
The InterActivist features independent reporting and politically progressive commentary on a wide range of underreported social justice issues and draws attention to the work of local and regional grassroots activists, groups, campaigns and events. The publication does not limit itself to “hot button” political issues, but also brings light to socio-economic, gender and racial inequality; environmental injustice; humanitarian efforts and other socially and politically conscious topics often ignored by mainstream media.
Although The InterActivist staff reserves the right to reject submissions, the views expressed in The InterActivist belong to individual authors and do not necessarily coincide with the positions of its publisher or co-sponsors, the members of these organizations, the magazine’s staff or its contributors.
