PopFront is an online magazine about politics, culture and activism, proudly centered in the Left Coast. We’re re-centering the national political conversation and bringing together the left.
PopFront is more than just a magazine, though. We are:
- A bridge between POP culture and a political FRONT. In Labor’s heyday in the United States, both culture and politics were demonstrably shifted to the left. The implicit relationship between organizing and art, referred to as “The Cultural Front“ by Michael Denning, propelled the reforms of the New Deal and influenced American society for generations.
- A hub for west coast political debate. The west coast is oft ignored by the intellectual left. PopFront is about re-centering the political conversation in the United States. New York and DC have been “normalized” as the center of politics in this country, despite demographic and cultural shifts in the past century; our goal is to make people re-think this norm.
- An intellectual salon for the West Coast. PopFront is about debate, discussion and dialogue. We are inclusive and diverse in voices and goals; we are about uniting, rather than fractionalizing, as the left is wont to do.
