One of the nation's oldest social justice magazines, The Progressive Christian, suspended publication at the beginning of 2012 after a failed winter fundraising campaign.
Before 2007, the magazine was named Zion's Herald (founded in 1823 by Methodist laity). It folded in content from The Other Side, which stopped publication in 2008.
Over the years the magazine advocated for an end to slavery, civil rights for women and people of color, workers' rights, nonviolent solutions to conflict, civil rights for gay and lesbian people, and care for creation.
