About NewPeople

NewPeople is the progressive peace and justice newspaper of Pittsburgh and the Tri-State area. It fills the voids left by the mainstream media reflecting the reality of progressive, alternative politics locally, nationally and globally. It focuses on topics of the neglected, omitted, and censored.

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