SUPPORT UNICORN RIOT’S ONGOING LEGAL STRUGGLE AGAINST ENERGY TRANSFER (DAPL) FOR PRESS FREEDOM
THANKS FOR SUPPORTING OUR EIGHT YEARS OF FRONTLINE INDEPENDENT MEDIA FUNDRAISER WITH OVER $12,000!
Since 2015, Unicorn Riot has built a worker-managed non-profit media organization. We have worked tirelessly to build a platform that focuses on primary source reporting and on-the-ground coverage. Our reporters go where the story is unfolding to bring you the voices of real people alongside crucial context and facts.
Our media platform publishes original content, such as:
- Live video streams of protests, civil unrest, migrant camps and border zones, political conventions, summits, speaking events and cultural performances
- In-depth investigations providing transparency into police killings, surveillance of social movements, and spotlighting corporate and government abuses
- Extensive reports exposing the most active white supremacist organizations in the U.S. based on our vast online database of leaked chats
- Community-focused coverage on arts and culture, alternative economics models, and sustainable living
- Short and long-form documentaries
- International reports and breaking news coverage
As we plan beyond 2024, your monetary support is crucial. We’re currently still locked into an extensive court battle over press freedoms with Energy Transfer, the multinational energy corporation behind the Dakota Access Pipeline. After years of fighting against their efforts to compel us to turn over documents from our reporting on the 2016 protests against the pipeline, we’ve been forced to spend $50,000 in legal fees. We need your help!
