The Independent Media Institute (IMI) has educated the public through a diverse array of independent media projects and programs for more than three decades. We work with journalists and media outlets to shine a spotlight on stories that are vital to the public interest, using multiple media formats and distribution channels. In 1998, IMI founded AlterNet, an award-winning news website that published original reporting by independent investigative journalists, syndicated a broad range of partner publications and reached diverse audiences. In early 2018, IMI transferred AlterNet to new ownership and re-focused on creating and distributing original, thoughtful explorations of social justice and public interest issues. A selection of our current content continues to publish on AlterNet, in partnership with the new owners. Through both its own reporting and via programs and partnerships with other organizations, IMI continues its pursuit of excellence and social impact in media.
