FSRN Mission Statement
Pacifica Reporters Against Censorship (PRAC), which operates as Free Speech Radio News (FSRN), is a nonprofit public benefit corporation and is not organized for the private gain of any person. It is organized under the California Nonprofit Public Benefit Corporation Law for public purposes.
FSRN's mission is to provide factual reports on important international and domestic news stories neglected or suppressed by the corporate press. We promote cultural diversity, human rights, and pluralistic community expression. Our stories amplify the voices of those ignored and unheard.
FSRN operates in a decentralized, collective manner and is controlled by its members. We promote and defend global press freedom and all forms of grassroots-supported media. We place a priority on direct participants and first-person narratives, and refuse funding from any source that attempts to influence factual reporting.
