Why You Should BECOME A MEMBER Before Tonight's Members Call
7pm est tonight is Status Coup's monthly members call through Zoom!
Hey folks, it’s Jordan. Right to the point. In a few hours, at 7pm est/4pm pst, we’ll have our monthly members call through Zoom (website members and Patreon members will get email with the link; YouTube members will get link through community post).
We usually go for an hour or two and have a lot of fun—and reveal some behind-the-scenes stuff just for members. Right now, we’ve gained 66 new paying members in May with a goal of adding at least 100.
Louis, Colin, and I have been really going 100 miles an hour the last few weeks, reporting ON-THE-GROUND in Flint, Kalamazoo, and East Palestine on the environmental corruption and calamities being all-but ignored by corporate media.
Our reporting is leading to results—for example, in Kalamazoo, our reporting led to the health department FINALLY releasing a health study they dragged their feet on for 3 years admitting Graphic Packaging, a multi-billion dollar packaging company, is releasing dangerous levels of toxic gases into a poor Black neighborhood for years. As activist Brandi Crawford said, our ON-THE-GROUND reporting forced the health department to finally release the study, which led to a community meeting last night.
On the East Palestine end, Louis and I are currently doing MAJOR investigative reporting behind-the-scenes. I can’t get into details at this point, but between us both, we’ve probably spent many hours on the phone this week with sources as well as going through previous Senate hearing. With investigative reporting, I can’t promise you a specific publish date, but I can promise you—what we’re finding out is downright scandalous and we are working to get the truth out to the public in order to help the sick and suffering people of East Palestine.
And, of course, on Flint, I continue to stay on this story when the rest of the media have long abandoned it. In fact, I just put in a very important Freedom of Information Act Request [FOIA] to the state of Michigan for certain documents. Stay tuned on that end…
I know there’s a million groups and networks emailing you begging for money and making a lot of promises through catchy marketing tactics. I don’t do marketing, but I do do real talk. We need to grow our paid membership significantly in order to continue funding this ON-THE-GROUND reporting. This includes paying Louis, for new equipment—WE JUST PURCHASED A NEW LIVEU FOR OVER $15K in order to expand our ability to go live across the country in more places with more reporters—and for other costs.
Will you support us for $5-10 bucks a month? That equated to 16 cents a day ($5) or 33 cents a day ($10). If you sign up in the next few hours, I hope to see you on our members Zoom call tonight!
