Summary

We are launching our 35th anniversary appeal to enable us to nimbly and quickly respond with the most creative solutions to threats to trusted, independent media worldwide. Many of us share a growing concern that we are entering a "post truth" reality where trust in traditional media and civic institutions is at an all-time low whilst propaganda, disinformation, hate speech, rumour and misinformation thrive. Your support can change that.

Challenge

The dark side of a "post truth" world is frighteningly clear. When citizens don't engage with each other, with civic institutions & with governments to discuss and debate issues, we fail to lay the foundations for strong, healthy democracies and economies. The manipulation of the media is a potent tool for authoritarian regimes, terrorists & others ready to prey on the most vulnerable in our societies. Truth matters - it's a powerful tool in the pursuit of equality and social harmony.

Solution

These issues feel shockingly new & dystopian to people in established democracies. But, for the majority of the world's citizens (only 1 in 7 people live in a country with a free press), the struggle to safely access trusted information is a daily one. Internews has helped some of the poorest countries grow their entire media infrastructure to create better-informed societies, kept freedom of expression alive & rebuilt communication networks in conflicts & following humanitarian emergencies.

Long-Term Impact

We all benefit from this work. In an increasingly interconnected world, issues reported as fact on the other side of the globe affect our understanding of reality & therefore some of the decisions we make. We all use media & information every day. From the mundane of choosing the right clothes for the weather, to the powerful; electing our leaders & holding politicians to account. Please, act now to ensure that Internews is here for another 35 years to protect free & fair media and information.
