Happy 2019!

Last year had its ups and downs, and I appreciate you weathering them with me. I know that I use comedy to address tough issues, and I hope that my comedy helped you to navigate the bitter, sometimes toxic, political sphere last year.

This week we have a special episode of Redacted Tonight featuring stand-up by a never-before-seen member of the Redacted crew. On Common Censored we looked at the good news from 2018, and there was a lot of it. Many countries are going above and beyond their promises to create environmental sustainability, and many people are putting in a lot of work to protect vulnerable communities.

Plus I’m unveiling an effort to show some of your stories to this community.

Thank you for being part of it all. I look forward to fighting entrenched powers with you in 2019!

- Lee


Yes, there was actually some really great news in 2018. It's important to look back on it to inspire our future fight & to give credit to the powerful work of activists and organizers.

In this episode of the podcast we covered activist victories in energy, environment, infrastructure, and human rights.

“Get shit done” should be the theme of 2019. …Just sayin’.
