Hollow Earth Radio

Hollow Earth Radio is the Pacific Northwest’s freeform online radio station that presents a forum for underrepresented music, sounds and perspectives. We are located in the Central District, Seattle’s historically African American neighborhood and later in 2016, we will begin broadcasting terrestrially (KHUH 100.3 FM) as a Low Powered FM station. Through the lens of media justice, we work directly with the community to build a training curriculum for people to become citizen journalists, DJ’s, sound engineers and more while providing a venue for artists and performers to showcase their work. We are also working towards creating news programing where we can consistently and artfully cover the issues in our region.

The Utility Reform Network (TURN)

TURN stands up for consumer rights, affordable rates and a more livable California. TURN challenges California’s powerful energy and telephone companies, saving consumers and small businesses millions, and demanding reliable service and environmentally sound policies. Our activities focus on three areas: • We advocate for fair prices. Our skilled legal team saves utility customers millions and advances groundbreaking policies and programs at the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) and the State Legislature. • We assist consumers with individual needs. Our consumer advisors help consumers understand their bills, challenge unjust utility company practices and access information about important money-saving programs. • We mobilize people statewide to take action for change. Our action team provides accurate and understandable information about critical energy and phone issues, and mobilizes people statewide for change through our campaigns.

Media Alliance

MA was founded with the belief that in order to ensure the free and unfettered flow of information and ideas necessary to maintain a truly democratic society, media must be accessible, accountable, decentralized, representative of society’s diversity and free from covert or overt government control and corporate dominance. MA dedicates itself to fostering a genuine diversity of media voices and perspectives, holding the media accountable for their impact on society and protecting freedom of speech. Media Alliance is a leader in building coalitions for press freedom and media access, accountability and alternatives.

Community Technology Network

Community Technology Network (CTN) unites organizations and volunteers to transform lives through digital literacy. We believe that access to the Internet is a human right and that those without the necessary computer skills are at risk of social and economic disadvantage. In partnership with open-access community computer centers across the San Francisco Bay Area, CTN delivers free computer skills programs to those in need. CTN also provides its partners with support, guidance, and resources to improve their digital literacy programs. At this time, a large proportion of CTN’s activity is focused on our SF Connected program, which serves older adults and adults with disabilities at senior centers throughout San Francisco. Read more about our programs at www.ctnbayarea.org. CTN engages approximately 200 volunteer computer trainers yearly, including students, working adults, job seekers, and retirees. Volunteers provide digital literacy training and tutoring to our community partners’ clients and/or additional services to CTN directly. Volunteer trainers are central to our organization, providing vital services that are key to our mission.

TV Santa Barbara provides the means for diverse individuals to tell their stories, hear each other’s stories, and create new stories together so what sets us apart may bring us together as one community.
