Seizing the power of television to expand social consciousness, FSTV fuels the movement for progressive social, economic, and political transformation. By exposing the public to perspectives excluded from the corporate-owned media, FSTV empowers citizens to fight injustices, to revitalize democracy, and to build a more compassionate world. Free Speech TV broadcasts independently-produced documentaries dealing with social, political, cultural, and environmental issues; commissions and produces original programming; develops programming partnerships and collaborations with social justice organizations; provides special live broadcasts from remote locations; and maintains an adjunct Web site that hosts one of the Internet's largest collection of progressive audio and video content. FSTV's core strategies include: movement building (empowering global citizens, by exposing abuse of power in all its forms, and by highlighting efforts of resistance); partnerships (building partnerships with social justice organizations and directing viewers to their work); independent media (working with, and supporting the growth of independent media); and creativity (celebrating creativity and artistic expression as a vital part of any healthy society).
