TakePart is a place for people who care about the world and want to live their lives accordingly. We feature original articles by journalists, activists, and experts about everything from climate change to LGBTQ rights to whether Big Macs should technically be considered food.
As the digital division of Participant Media, the folks who brought you such acclaimed documentaries as Food, Inc., An Inconvenient Truth, and The Cove, TakePart is also a hub for the hundreds of thousands of highly active and loyal fans of these films.
But there’s more—much more. (Like, the word “more” feels vaguely inadequate here.) In addition to being a place to read about issues that matter, TakePart is a place to make a difference. We believe more people would get involved if they had intuitive, trusted ways to do so (call us crazy), so we’re providing just that.
Accompanying each article you read on TakePart, you’ll find a way to take meaningful and immediate action—sign a petition, donate, send support, take a pledge. Even better, each action is vetted by our intimidatingly knowledgeable Social Action team, so you know you’ll be lending your voice to a good cause.
We recognize, too, that in today’s world you also vote and speak with your wallet, so you’ll find lifestyle articles to help you make safe, responsible, ethical choices on grocery store shelves, in the dressing room, at the drug store, and beyond—without compromising taste or quality. (No chafe-tastic hemp underwear for you, dear reader.)
