The Media Co-op publishes and promotes new stories every day. We provide training and support for editors and journalists, we highlight the work of social movements and affected communities, and we cover stories that no one else is covering.
And we give it all away.
Tens of thousands of articles are available on this site. What makes this possible? Member funding.
Our members are the reason we don't have to chase foundations or advertisers. They gives us the freedom to pursue the stories our members, not corporate sponsors or philanthropists, want us to cover.
But members aren't just donors, they're owners. As a member, you get benefits, but you are also consulted on major decisions. You elect the board of directors. It's member-funded and member-owned media.
