Progressive editor to speak Wednesday
The Rock River Open Forum will host a talk by Matthew Rothschild, editor of The Progressive Magazine, from 6:30 until 8:30 p.m. Wednesday at the Rock Falls Public Library.
The Progressive Magazine is a Madison, Wis.-based publication founded in 1909 by U.S. Sen. Robert M. “Fighting Bob” La Follette, under the name The La Follette Weekly. It was renamed The Progressive in the 1920s and went to a monthly format.
The magazine’s mission statement is to steadfastly stand against militarism, the concentration of power in corporate hands, and the disenfranchisement of the citizenry. It champions peace, social and economic justice, civil rights, civil liberties, human rights, a preserved environment, and a reinvigorated democracy. Its bedrock values are nonviolence and freedom of speech.
