Our primary strategy for media production is to utilize a variety of programming. Unicorn Riot currently operates a multitude of programs, including; live video streams, investigative reporting, short-form documentaries, podcasts, and articles detailing a variety of issues. We aim to provide our viewers with the continued ability to gain new and up-to-date knowledge, and become involved in further discourse on a wide assortment of topics.
Unicorn Riot has over thirteen members on staff and five contributors. Our members have a wide range of experiences and backgrounds. Much of the core members come from decades of experience utilizing multimedia to document social/environmental justice movements with some coming from decades of experience organizing, as well as some having administrative experience working for non-profits. As one entity, our media collective is passionate, creative, and determined to become a leading force in independent media.
