ACM Mission
The Alliance for Community Media is a national membership organization that advocates, promotes and preserves the right to media training, production, distribution, civic engagement and education in support of diverse community voices, through Public, Educational and Government Access channels and other forms of media.

ACM’s Vision
All communities have the resources, ability and right to express themselves, create community dialogue and engage in civic life through local media.

Guiding Principles
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.
