FSRN’s mission is to provide factual reports on important international and domestic news stories neglected or suppressed by the corporate press. They promote cultural diversity, human rights, and pluralistic community expression. Their stories amplify the voices of those ignored and unheard.
FSRN operates in a decentralized, collective manner and is controlled by its members. They promote and defend global press freedom and all forms of grassroots-supported media. They place a priority on direct participants and first-person narratives, and refuse funding from any source that attempts to influence factual reporting.
