Welcome to the Online Home of MPI.
“The media’s job is to interest the public in the public interest,” said American educator John Dewey. MPI takes that charge very seriously and believes the strength of a democracy depends on informed citizens making educated decisions. With this in mind, MPI was founded in 2003. MPI enhances public debate and promotes civic journalism by amplifying through mainstream media the grassroot non-profit voices that have been effectively cut from the public dialogue.
- To support the civil society non-profit sector to interact more effectively with mainstream media
- Help develop new media projects that strengthen communities and report on social, community and environmental issues that affect people in their daily lives
- Assist journalists in covering the non-profit public interest community
