Mission: Free Press fights for your rights to connect and communicate.
We're working to create a world where people have the information and opportunities they need to tell their own stories, hold leaders accountable, and participate in our democracy.
We fight to save the free and open internet, curb runaway media consolidation, protect press freedom, and ensure diverse voices are represented in our media.
Results: Free Press and its complementary 501(c)4 organization, the Free Press Action Fund, have engaged and mobilized millions of people in crucial media policy debates. Free Press and its 900,000 members have challenged the most egregious corporate and governmental attacks on the open Internet, press freedom and public broadcasting — and won some remarkable victories.

Free Press is helping to expose what's going on and stem that tide. This is a fight we must win...failure is not an option.
