Matt Rothschild has combined a lifetime of activism and writing. He is currently the executive director of the Wisconsin Democracy Campaign. Prior to joining the organization at the start of 2015, Matt worked at The Progressive magazine for 32 years. For most of those, he was the editor and publisher of The Progressive. While there, he wrote a book entitled You Have No Rights: Stories of America in an Age of Repression and he edited an anthology called Democracy in Print: The Best of The Progressive, 1909-2009.
Matt's opinion pieces have run in the Chicago Tribune, the LA Times, the Miami Herald and a host of other newspapers. And he’s appeared on “Nightline,” NPR and C-SPAN, among others.
While with The Progressive, Matt focused attention on President George W. Bush’s messianic militarism, and he has kept track of the theocratic tendencies within the Trump administration. He offers political analysis and discusses his atheism on "Freethought Matters."
