Media & Democracy Coalition

Washington, DC

The Media and Democracy Coalition is a collaboration of over two dozen local and national organizations committed to promoting open and equal access to a democratic media system that serves the public interest. Our current priorities include:

* Opening the media system to all perspectives and competing voices by promoting diversity of ownership and content, while stopping media consolidation and monopoly control of the public airwaves.

* Bridging the digital divide by guaranteeing that Internet access is fast, affordable, and accessible to all, and promoting public efforts to create such networks.

Working together, we seek to amplify the voices of the public in shaping media and telecommunications policy. To learn more about our vision, read the Bill of Media Rights. To learn more about our accomplishments, download our 2006 Annual Report.
Our Role

The Media and Democracy Coalition was founded in 2005 by the nation’s leading public interest media reform and telecommunications advocates. Our role is to facilitate collaboration among diverse organizations; help build organizational capacity to increase the number of groups working to reform our media landscape; share information and resources; and create opportunities for joint mobilization on key media reform policies.
