A movement is only as strong as its members. If you believe in democracy and want to be a part of our movement for Southeast Asian democracy, please join New Naratif as a member.
New Naratif’s operations are funded by our memberships. In order to be sustainable, we need 5,048 members at the lowest tier. Membership starts at only US$5/month.
Memberships support our three core activities:
Publishing: We bring important information in accessible formats to the people of Southeast Asia. Our work is ad-free and non-partisan. We do not accept paid stories. Relying on advertising revenue can influence the content of an outlet or make a site vulnerable to being shut down. Our business model is creating quality journalism for readers, not selling our readers to advertisers.
Community: We connect people who want to make Southeast Asia better, bringing you together in our Democracy Classrooms, Baca reading groups, and other events. Members participate in a safe, respectful space where people can discuss the most important issues facing Southeast Asia, learn from each other, and empower themselves as citizens.
Advocacy: New Naratif proudly advocates for and models ethical, moral, and progressive values rooted in the Southeast Asian context. We also seek to create pathways for our community to create positive change in their communities. Together, New Naratif members have pushed back against authoritarian laws in Singapore, fundraised for those displaced by the haze and forest fires in Indonesia, and helped support the education of refugee children in Malaysia.
As a non-profit organisation, all of our income is channelled into programmes and content. Your donations help pay for our team members, freelancers, events, and advocacy. It helps us speak truth to power and helps make important information accessible to the people of SEA.
CANCELLATION: Membership automatically renews until cancelled. Email firstname.lastname@example.org to cancel at any time or at least one day before the membership renewal date.
