The Alliance for Community Media ~ Northwest Region represents and advocates on behalf of all media creators and providers including videographers, musicians, graphic designers and Public, Educational and Governmental (PEG) cable TV access organizations, community media centers, and access producers throughout Alaska, Alberta, British Columbia, Idaho, Montana, Oregon, Utah, Washington, and Wyoming.
Founded initially as a group to support PEG organizations, the inclusion of digital media providers resonates with us on issues like net neutrality, broadband access and the distribution and (protection/production) of artists’ work everywhere.
