ACM Mission: Promoting Civic Engagement Through Community Media
- Thriving community media centers in cities and towns nationwide
- Stable funding and channel capacity for centers that have a demonstrably beneficial impact on their communities
- Infrastructure that will promote the sharing of “best practices” amongst these centers, and incentives to encourage these centers to achieve their highest potential
- Freedom from political, ideological, or commercial interference that would inhibit service delivery or use of these centers by any lawfully engaged citizen
Our guiding principles are: promote free speech, expand civic engagement through local media, collaborate with others, and act with one voice.
Business Plan: To create its Business Plan, ACM conducted an in-depth assessment of the organization and what it would take for ACM to set a new course leading to a better future for community media.
