Workers Party Media and Press
The Workers Party maintains a number of public media outlets that are designed to present and explain our views, as well as help with educating, agitating and organizing our fellow workers as part of the effort to prepare them for taking power in their own name. All of our public media functions under the principle of open polemic. That is, the Party maintains a policy allowing for letters and submissions that are oriented toward discussion of important political questions — both those currently facing the working class, and those that clarify moments in the history of the international proletariat and its movement. In addition, we welcome article submissions, correspondence and reports from our brothers and sisters on issues affecting them. If you are interested in submitting an article, please contact us.
Below you will find a basic description of our print and audio media projects, as well as links to article and issue/episode archives (where available). If you have any further questions about our media, please contact us through this website.
The Central Organ and voice of the Central Committee of the Workers Party in America, the Worker-Communist provides news and analysis, opinion, commentary and more from a working-class communist perspective. The Worker-Communist began in 2013 as a biweekly newspaper, acting as a supplement to Working People’s Advocate. In 2014, the Central Committee decided to turn WC into a monthly, with more in-depth analysis and longer articles. However, after a long discussion among members, the C.C.’s decision was reversed and, beginning on December 6, 2014, the Worker-Communist will return to its original format as the Party’s weekly newspaper.
The feature sections that were the centerpiece of the monthly WC will be spun off into their own supplementary bulletins, published by their respective commissions and working groups, and included with regular issues of the Worker-Communist; the articles will be published on the website of WC.

Working People’s Advocate
Our Party’s Central Organ from 2009 to 2013, Working People’s Advocate was the source for keeping up on unfolding events and issues especially relevant to working people, and had a decade-long record of telling the truth and explaining the facts, even when it is extremely unpopular or out-of-fashion to do so. Beginning in 2013, Working People’s Advocate was transformed into a monthly magazine in order to make way for the Worker-Communist. At the end of 2013, the Central Committee finally closed WPA while agreeing to maintain a full archive of all issues of the paper and magazine we produced.
