Citizen Media Inc. is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization. Our mission is to foster public policy discussion, and help advance the civic health of the Greylock region around Williamstown, North Adams and Adams by meeting community-information needs through, among other methods:
- A web, multimedia resource, GreylockIndependent.com
- Periodic sponsorship of meetings, talks, lectures and circle-round discussions on civic issues
- Occasional print reports and publications
We are operating on a minuscule budget. We need help in multiple ways—in identifying the issues that matter and the people making a contribution to the future of our region, in meeting the costs of research and writing, and through volunteer or stipend-based writing and research help.
Citizen Media, Inc. was founded in 1981 by Frank Patterson, a civic-minded Williamstown resident who thought it made sense to watch what local boards were doing, do some research and tell media organizations and the public about it. Click to read about Frank. Today with the benefit of mobile and Internet technology, we can do much more than Frank envisioned. But it will still take people, commitment and financial support .
