About the Beacon

The Bucks County Beacon is an independent media outlet that offers news, analysis, and opinion from a progressive perspective. We also report the stories that other local media outlets can’t or don’t cover, especially the growing threat of right-wing extremism to our schools, government, and democracy. Local media in Bucks County has been decimated over the past decade by corporate layoffs and the Beacon is working to fill the information gap. We publish writers and activists who may be your neighbors in Bucks County, or who are reporting and organizing across Pennsylvania for a progressive future.

We are a reader-supported, popular, and participatory media outlet that acts as a catalyst for community organizing and action, and progressive change. To be part of this progressive movement media, contact Editor Cyril Mychalejko at cmychalejko@gmail.com. Sign up for our weekly newsletter, and follow us on Twitter and Facebook to read and share all of our stories.
