Mission

THE UNDERGROUND MEDIA COLLECTIVE IS RE-IMAGINING PUBLIC MEDIA. We are a multimedia platform for storytelling and high-quality content. We are owned and shaped by community members through a cooperative model.

The UNDERGROUND MEDIA COLLECTIVE was established to ensure the public narrative better reflects and serves marginalized communities. We amplify community voices. We provide access to comprehensive, nuanced information about critical issues. We produce and distribute content, track and train other media, and support and share content from community members – with fair compensation and protection of their intellectual and artistic rights.

We own our bias of social, economic, and racial justice and promote equity and social change.

 

Goals

The UNDERGROUND MEDIA COLLECTIVE is a mission based media organization. Our mission is to be a story platform for underrepresented communities.         

 

01.

Represent Community voices

We create a platform for community members to create and voice their narrative. The collective is a conduit to comprehensive, nuanced information about critical issues.

02.

Invest in people

The UnMC is a collective. We are mission driven to bolster media creators, our collective members, with access to resources and support.

 

03.

Change culture and policy

We offer an alternative to existing media: seizing and sharing power rather than seeking permission. We are a media outlet that reflects and serves the community; engages and informs the public consequently shifting public policy and shifts in power.

04.

Re-Imagine Public Media

The UnMC was established to ensure the public narrative better reflects and serves marginalized communities. Public media should include the voices of folks at the grassroots level.

History

It has been said that history is written by the victors. We are winning. We are writing our own history.  Our organization was created out of a need, the need for communities to create their own media.

We produce and distribute content, track and train other media, and elicit and share content from community members – with fair compensation and protection of their intellectual and artistic rights.

We own our bias of social, economic, and racial justice and promote equity and social change.


Our current "public media" is in fact donor media. We intend on representing a more full and more accurate face of public discourse. Like Ms. Shirley Chisholm, We are " unbought and unbossed."
