Beacon supports its affiliates and the independent media field by partnering with other national advocacy groups to work  on cultural, intellectual property, and telecommunications policy issues.

From supporting local and regional grassroots activities to making sure our voices are heard by legislators and policymakers, Beacon works to promote and protect the values of a free and independent media arts sector.

We also strive to keep our members informed and energized about policy-related actions through news briefs, analysis and links to our partners’ activities, and on-the-ground stories from activists around the country.
