Media Alliance was formed in 1976 by a group of
workers to unite the professional media community with the public
communities of the Bay Area.
MA was founded with the belief that in
order to ensure the
free and unfettered flow of information and ideas necessary to maintain
democratic society, media must be accessible, accountable,
representative of society's diversity and free from covert or overt
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
protecting freedom of speech.
Media Alliance is a media resource and advocacy center for
media workers, non-profit organizations, and social justice activists.
Our mission is excellence, ethics, diversity, and accountability in all
aspects of the media in the interests of peace, justice, and social
