Keeping up this site as a source of news and events for the activist community is hard work, and there is always room for new faces and fresh voices! Love the site? Want to see it improve? Step on up and help. There are tons of ways to get involved with the local, people-controlled media called Indymedia. (People-controlled media - what a radical idea!)
The site needs original reporting! First and foremost, Indymedia is the place where you can tell your stories and report on what the corporate media won't tell you. Go to an action? Write about what you saw here. See an eye-opening presentation? Write about what you learned here. Want to do an investigative piece about local issues that are of interest to you? Go for it! It only takes a second to hit the "publish" button, and you can get your story out!

Beyond that, San Diego Indymedia is an all-volunteer collective; no one gets paid to work with Indymedia. You can get involved with one or more working groups by attending meetings and subscribing to our lists. We have at least one meeting a month, which you can read about on the Contact Us page.
We send out event and meeting announcements about once a week on our announcement mailing list. You can sign up for that list here: http://lists.indymedia.org/imc-sd-announce

Like to get out with your video camera? The San Diego IMC Video Collective needs you! We always needs more help. There are video showings several times a month to showcase local videographer footage of protests, events and local issues. Got something DIY you'd like to share? Let them know so they can tape you for their ongoing DIY video series. You can sign up for the video collective mailing list here: http://lists.indymedia.org/imc-sd-video
Like to write? Like to edit? Take the San Diego Free Press by the reins. The project has been off and on for a few years, but if you'd like to take it on again, that would be great! It can be as big or small as you want, as long as you do it! You can sign up for the mailing list here: http://lists.mutualaid.org/mailman/listinfo/sdfp
