Recent events have demonstrated the urgent need for a truly independent media outlet in Israel.
Now, more than ever, Israeli democracy needs brave citizens who are unafraid to stand up and speak out. It is of the utmost importance that a free, hard-hitting, courageous, and uncompromising press exists in Israel that is independent and unafraid to address big problems.
DemocraTV is Darkenu's answer to that call. Using the most advanced technology at its disposal, DemocraTV allows for extensive and autonomous live coverage of social movements. The collaborative network, in which the viewers choose the topics and interviewees themselves, provides targeted news-related programs. Those interviewees include former prime ministers, cultural icons, and key leaders in the 2021 election.
DemocraTV's approach has resonated with the public in a big way: In the first nine months, 2.3 million Israelis have tuned in, and more than 7,500 have become partners by contributing small monthly donations.
To continue growing, however, DemocraTV needs our help. At OneVoice, we need to raise $25,000 for the network by the end of March. By making a generous gift today, you can lead us toward this goal.
This is a rare opportunity to push back against partisan coverage that values profits over truth. To learn more about DemocraTV, listen to our podcast episode with its lead editor, and check out its English YouTube channel.
Darkenu, the movement responsible for this unique initiative, is Israel’s largest non-partisan civil society movement. It organizes, amplifies, and empowers the moderate majority of Israelis to influence government policy and public discourse. As a grassroots movement, employees and volunteers work daily across Israel—door by door, town by town—setting up stalls in public centers, organizing house meetings, events, demonstrations, and protest vigils in an effort to strengthen justice, equality, mutual respect, and democratic values in Israel.
Its goals are to promote:
- Israel as a national home for the Jewish people and a democratic state for all its citizens.
- The necessity of a continuous effort to reach a diplomatic agreement that will eventually result in separation into two states and ensure Israel’s security.
- Social and economic justice, equal opportunities, and civil solidarity within the State of Israel.
- The eradication of incitement, division, corruption, and racism in all forms within the State of Israel.
Through this partnership, Darkenu and DemocraTV will remain at the forefront of the struggle for socio-economic justice and free media in Israel, while leading the pushback against extremist discourse threatening the very essence of Zionism.
