Become a member and enjoy the benefits of getting the New People progressive newspaper delivered right to your door each month! The New People is the peace and justice newspaper of Pittsburgh and the Tri-State region and is published 10 times a year. It fills the voids left by the mainstream media reflecting the reality of progressive, alternative politics, locally, nationally and globally.

As a publication of the Thomas Merton Center, the paper reports on the issues of war, poverty, racism and oppression, raising the moral questions involved in the non-violent struggle to bring about a more peaceful and just world. The NewPeople acts as an organizing tool and communiqué for Thomas Merton Center members and the activist community at large.
