We believe that Trump’s victory makes it official: Traditional media has been disrupted. It’s not theoretical any more it’s here. And we must innovate our way out of crisis. That is why we set up the act.tv team to embed ourselves in social movements so that we can create compelling content covering the most important issues and activism. Our approach has been honed through taking part in and covering Occupy Wall Street, Ready for Warren, the Bernie Sanders campaign, the Trump resistance movement, and more. This experience taught us that all-volunteer teams of activists can accomplish world-changing feats, but as the internet increasingly takes over television, progressives have to up our game by creating better and better videos telling our stories.
Towards these ends, Facebook video is quickly becoming an absolutely vital tool for organizers. It can both attain the attention of would-be allies as well as coordinate committed activists. But to achieve the lofty goals we dare to dream we are going to need a next generation kind of community. Join us on our journey to build the better world we know is possible!
