The People’s Press Project

The People’s Press Project (PPP) is Fargo-Moorhead’s only non-profit dedicated to empowering the community to impart media, rather than being consumers of media. We stand for the development and proliferation of Independent Media and the creation of new community based journalists to inform the community of the real news by the people and for the people. We do this through training, access to equipment and strategic opportunities to develop media through Independent news sources, Social Networks and through the web.

Open Access Connections

The mission of Open Access Connections is to bridge the phone access gap of low-income and homeless people by facilitating communication services. Our goal is to find innovative ways to use communication technologies to provide opportunities for people in need, to forge new connections to the community, and to one another. These connections enhance dignity, foster independence, and contribute to success.

North News

North News is a grassroots print and digital community news source and youth journalism program in North Minneapolis. We seek to deepen understanding, empathy, and appreciation for the Northside through our deep, interrogative, and community-sourced coverage. Our goal is to expand local and Twin Cities-wide perceptions of this place which is often reduced to a single, negative narrative – one of crime, poverty, blight, and disparity. We dig deep beneath the surface and lift up North Minneapolis’ nuanced truths. We are a source of great pride within our community.

Working Narratives

We work with movements to tell great stories that inspire, activate and enliven our democracy. We believe that social movements thrive and win when they draw on participants’ personal experiences and local cultures. By telling stories—whether in the form of performance, radio, video, or other media—movements build power, envision new democratic possibilities, and change culture and policy. Our work is located at the intersection of arts, technology, and policy.

Generation Justice

Generation Justice (GJ) is a multiracial, multicultural project that trains youth to harness the power of community and raise critical consciousness through leadership development, civic engagement, media production and narrative shift in the areas that most impact New Mexicans- racial justice, health, education, early childhood development, and economic security.

Center for Digital Democracy

The Center for Digital Democracy (CDD) serves a vitally important mission protecting the privacy and welfare of the public in the “Big Data” digitally driven marketplace. CDD’s work helps nonprofits, the news media, policymakers, and concerned citizens/consumers understand and address the online business practices that increasingly influence our lives. We position ourselves on the cutting edge of commercial digital media developments, analyzing how the dramatic expansion of online and offline information collection, the use of sophisticated data analysis, and advances in the creation and delivery of personalized marketing are used to target individuals, families, and communities. CDD especially focuses on key areas it believes has a crucial impact on a person’s financial security, health, children, and civil rights. By combining advocacy, industry research, coalition- building, and media outreach, CDD helps hold accountable some of the most powerful forces shaping the destiny of the world—especially those companies that dominant the global Internet landscape.

Common Frequency

Common Frequency is a nonprofit dedicated to innovative new community and college radio. By providing free and low-cost aid to regular people educating themselves to be the media, Common Frequency has been supporting the launch of grassroots stations since 2006.

Prometheus Radio Project

The Prometheus Radio Project is a non-profit organization founded by a small group of radio activists in 1998. Prometheus builds, supports and advocates for community radio stations that bring together and empower local, participatory voices and movements for social change. To that end, we demystify technologies, the political process that governs access to our media system, and the effects of media on our lives and our communities.
