You're part of a strong and independent online force of media activism -- and the need for it is only growing!
-- The RootsAction.org Team
Click here to watch a 99-second video message from RootsAction's Jamani Montague and David Swanson on why and how we struggle for a better communications system.
RootsAction, as it has grown, has developed the ability to use major media outlets to advance its campaigns. We have also collaborated with good and growing independent media outlets to strengthen their reporting. And we have worked on numerous successful campaigns to reform the corporate media.
We succeeded in demanding that NBC remove a horrible war-o-tainment show from its programing. We helped keep the Koch brothers from taking over the Los Angeles Times.
Our educational work has put new stories into the major media, including the story of CIA whistleblower Jeffrey Sterling, and the story of the conflict of interest created by the owner of the Washington Post also owning CIA contracts worth far more than the Washington Post.
People are using our Do-It-Yourself site to advance and win media campaigns in various localities.
Please take a minute and a half to watch the video and help us continue to gain strength!
We can only do this work with your help. Click here to see the video and to donate $3 or more toward RootsAction's upcoming media activism campaigns.
Most of the struggles mentioned above are ongoing. They will continue through and long beyond this year's election season.
RootsAction is well-positioned to take on these challenges. We've had successes in promoting progressive solutions to problems at the state level, as well as in Washington, D.C.
But RootsAction can't continue without your help. Please click here to contribute what you can right now, and share this message with others.
