Friends of The World,

From the beginning of the show in 1995, the core mission of our reporting at The World has been to bring you stories grounded in human-centered journalism from perspectives all around the globe. 

You may be familiar with my voice on The World every day, but behind the scenes, there are incredible people who are essential in bringing our production to life. They are the reporters, producers and editors working around the clock, and as we speak, to cover the stories you depend on. 

As world leaders wring their hands over how to tackle the climate crisis, each week The World brings you stories of individuals and groups finding climate solutions. And while other news outlets are now trying to explain why so many Latino voters turned out for US President Donald Trump, we were telling the stories of this diverse voting bloc all year long — digging deeper to understand the motivations, hopes and unique experiences of young Latino voters casting presidential ballots for the first time.

We can cover these stories with depth and humanity, but only thanks to the generous support of listeners. I hope that, in this most critical time, you will consider a gift to The World.
