The Alliance for Community Media!

Mission Statement

In order for democracy to flourish, people must be active participants in their government, educated to think critically and free to express themselves.

The Mission of the Alliance for Community Media is to advance democratic ideals by ensuring that people have access to electronic media and by promoting effective communication through community uses of media.

For almost a quarter of a century, the Alliance for Community has educated and advocated on behalf of community media. Thousands of groups and over a million volunteer producers, directors, presenters, and technical staff participate in Public, Educational, Governmental (PEG) access production annually. These professionals and volunteers producer more than 20,000 hours of new local programming each week. That’s more than NBC, CBS, ABC, FOX and PBS combined.
