Mission. To inform and engage the public about inequality and imbalance of power.
What we do. We are a nonpartisan digital media company with a mission. We produce compelling original video, share our content through social and traditional media to raise awareness about the issues, and partner with leading organizations to provide an avenue through which viewers can engage, mobilize, and take action. Our videos are far from a dry college economics lecture—they contain entertaining and easy to understand graphics, photos, and animations. We explain the underlying economics, give the facts, and tie the issue back to the imbalance of power and widening inequality in America. Our formula takes moments in the news cycle and explains them in a way that ties in the larger story of a movement and desire for change. We believe in the power of narrative, and in the power of an informed and engaged public to bring about social change that will create a more level economy and more stable democracy. Video topics have included universal basic income, the student debt crisis, free trade, the racial wealth gap, gerrymandering, infrastructure, corporate inversions, border adjustment tax, Medicare for all, and the role of the media in a democracy, among many others. Inequality Media is a registered California 501(c)(3) nonprofit organized for educational purposes. Our associated organization— Inequality Media Civic Action—is a registered California 501(c)(4) social welfare organization.https://www.inequalitymedia.org/
League Of Women Voters. Since 1920 we have been an activist, grassroots organization whose leaders believed that voters should play a critical role in democracy. The League of Women Voters was founded by Carrie Chapman Catt in 1920 during the convention of the National American Woman Suffrage Association. The convention was held just six months before the 19th amendment to the U.S. Constitution was ratified, giving women the right to vote after a 72-year struggle. The League began as a “mighty political experiment” designed to help 20 million women carry out their new responsibilities as voters. It encouraged them to use their new power to participate in shaping public policy. From the beginning, the League has been an activist, grassroots organization whose leaders believed that citizens should play a critical role in advocacy. It was then, and is now, a nonpartisan organization. League founders believed
that maintaining a nonpartisan stance would protect the fledgling organization from becoming mired in the party politics of the day. However, League members were encouraged to be political themselves, by educating citizens about, and lobbying for, government and social reform legislation. This holds true today. The League is proud to be nonpartisan, neither supporting nor opposing candidates or political parties at any level of government, but always working on vital issues of concern to members and the public. The League has a long, rich history, that continues with each passing year. https://www.lwv.org/
