OUR MISSION

PIA is a strategic media and public policy partner for grassroots nonprofits working to advance the public interest.

All too often in our society, special interests and corporate interests overshadow and drown out the voices of We the People. Rather than trying to address this issue in our respective silos or leaving our elected officials to navigate this reality without accountability to the public, we aim to advance public interest through education, collaboration, and legislation.

PIA enhances public awareness and debate about issues that affect people and planet by amplifying the voices of grassroots, nonprofit organizations whose research and work are often left out of the mainstream media’s narrative. PIA educates the public on issues that both help and harm communities, and works together with nonprofit organizations, advocates, policy analysts, and experts to promote legislation that is in the public interest.

OUR VISION & FOCUS AREAS

Our vision is a more just society based on the simple, yet profound principle of the sovereignty of the people.

Our focus areas include: Economic Justice • Social Justice • Climate Justice

OUR GOAL

We aim to utilize media and public policy to advance public interest through a three-fold strategy of:

  • Educating the media and the public on issues that both help and harm communities
  • Amplifying the voices of grassroots nonprofits through strategic media partnerships and our weekly Public Interest Journal
  • Working with nonprofits, advocates, and other experts to advance model legislation that is in the public interest
