An independent, non-profit organization committed to community journalism, in-depth critical analysis, the promotion of civic participation and the dissemination of educational material.

Making Contact produces media that analyses critical social, political and environmental issues and showcases grassroots solutions in order to inform and inspire audiences to action. Making Contact is broadcast on 120 stations across the US and Canada and also can be listened to via podcast and MP3s.

Our work heightens public consciousness, broadens debate on critical social issues and encourages civic participation, by giving voice to diverse perspectives and opinions underrepresented in the mass media.

Making Contact conducts community storytelling radio fellowships to get Bay Area voices heard nationally. Making Contact is available for hire for studio use and recording or training and invites any gigs or donations to keep the crew afloat. Making Contact receives no government or corporate funding, so we rely on community members to chip in and contribute.
