We know the mainstream media does not give you the picture of what’s happening in the hinterland. And perhaps that’s why our cities fail to understand what’s going on in the rest of the country, and struggle to understand the perspective of marginalised groups and their realities. But these community reporters are going to change that! The FREE/DEM initiative will curate and publish reports by these local and independent journalists, which will be shared with the mainstream media. But all this can only happen when we offer our support. Contribute now!

They will convince you that corruption is in fact good for the economy, just the way demonetisation was. Those who ask questions, will either be bought, or if they dont listen - killed. As citizens, then, the onus is on us to fight back and empower the media that is funded by the People! Contribute to Janta Ka Reporter's Political Reporting fund:
There are conflicting reports on NDTV's taking over by a corporate leader considered close to the establishment. Now we can either shake our head and accept the outcome, or send out a clear and strong message - you may influence or buy out individual companies, but you cant buy out the entire fourth estate. Contribute funds to Seema Mustafa's uncompromising and independent - The Citizen. This fund will be used to commission more stories and expand the reach and influence of the platform.
