Mission and Programs

Mission

Squeaky Wheel Productions' mission: 1) To promote and foster public awareness of points of view, news and information – generally ignored or marginalized in public and private media – in order to encourage a more just and democratic global community. 2) To develop and distribute content for various media formats, including broadcast and print, that informs the public on a wide range of issues including peaceful settlement of disputes, social justice, human, civil, labor and economic rights and environmental stewardship. 3) To provide a forum for journalists, academics, activists and artists to report or comment on issues and events from the perspective of the people most affected, who may have little power to influence the outcome or ability to have their voices heard on the public stage. 4) To facilitate the training of individuals in various production techniques in order to afford them the ability to take an active role in generating unique material that can be disseminated to a wider audience through a range of media outlets. 5) To organize, sponsor and promote meetings, public forums, lectures, workshops and artistic presentations on local, national and international issues, as well as analysis of how media institutions report on world events. In 2004, Squeaky Wheel Productions was formed to produce and distribute Between The Lines Radio Newsmagazine's syndication to more nonprofit, noncommercial radio stations and to the public via podcast and streaming webcasts. Between The Lines was first produced in 1991 and is celebrating its 25th year on the air in 2016.
