The Twin Cities Media Alliance began in the winter of 2005 with the mission of bringing together media professionals and engaged citizens to improve the quality, accountability and diversity of the local media, and giving the public the tools they need to become more active participants in the emerging media environment.
We accomplish our mission through:

  • Offering citizen journalism classes and media skills workshops
  • Publishing the Twin Cities Daily Planet, an award-winning  professionally edited local news website that combines original reporting by citizen journalists with the best of the neighborhood, community and ethnic press
  • Building a partnership with neighborhood and community media serving diverse Twin Cities communities
  • Hosting public forums
  • Organizing networking opportunities for media professionals and engaged citizens Learn More
