Get Involved

We’re a global community of volunteers organized around the goal of creating better practices for journalism and independent media for people, not profits.

We accept submissions daily

To make your first post, create an account, then click “Add a New Post” once logged in and submit the post for review when you are ready. Once you submit a post for review it will show up as “Pending” for Editors to review before approving or denying the post for publication. This process happens 24/7 365 days a year and usually doesn’t take longer than a few hours to a few days depending on the post.

Other Ways to Contribute

Print The News

We always need volunteers to print and post news in your own community. At the bottom of every news post on radiofree.org, you’ll see a “Print” button. Click that button to print that article with the standard Radio Free newspaper template- including in-line citations.

Leave copies in cafes, waiting rooms, break rooms, bookstores, trains, bulletin boards, or even on walls as wheat pastings. You can print these on regular paper with any printer and disseminate them to make a positive impact in your community.

How to get started? You don’t need anything besides a printer and a stapler. Start printing news and distributing it in your community. It’s as simple as that, and you can be a hero!

Record the News

We want everyone to get involved with creating news content. Whether it be a traditional news report, or something more creative like a song, video or visual artwork, we’ll accept it as long as its news.

We value the role music and other forms of expression have on journalism. We allow all forms of expression as content. We fundamentally understand the role of the media to be that of a mediator rather than an gatekeeper, and so we value expression rather than stifle it.

To contribute a post, click on posts once you’ve logged in and then add a new post using the WordPress editor. Your submitted posts will go to a Radio Free editor for review after submission. We try to keep the review process short, but review times may vary depending on many contributing factors.

It’s easier than you think to contribute to the daily news. Anyone, of any age, of any background, at any skill level can contribute an article. We only require passionate, thoughtful people who can share their perspectives of the world with others.

Develop

We are always in need of web and app developers to volunteer by building opensource tools for journalists. If you’d like to volunteer on our tech team, email info@radiofree.org and just include a short introduction and let us know how you can help.

Translate

Translating and transcribing the news is one of the easiest ways to get started. If you speak multiple languages, we would love your help translating news posts and pages on our website to any language. If you want to get involved translating, email info@radiofree.org and let us know what languages you can translate, and in which format (audio, text, etc..)

Designing Tools for Journalism

Our team builds and designs everything from facial recognition software that helps artists confront border patrol, to affordable wireless microphone transmitters for reporters to use in the field, to FM and AM radio transmitters for LPFM stations and much more.

We need help designing the tools of the future. Everything we build is opensource, and maintained by volunteers.


Got an idea for something we probably need help with but haven’t listed here? Email info@radiofree.org and let us know about it!
