Raise Your Voice!

Arlington Independent Media builds our community by bringing independent voices together to exchange ideas, opinions and artistic expressions. By providing comprehensive basic training, masters-level advanced instruction, a fully equipped digital production facility, content rich website and channels delivered to every Arlington cable subscriber, we make people into producers, not just consumers, of media.

We’re all enriched when our volunteer producers raise their voices. Since October 1982, they’ve placed more than fifteen thousand programs on our channel and website. Their shows have covered every style and genre of television and have expressed innumerable points of view. Almost thirty percent of their programs have been in languages other than English, including Vietnamese, Farsi, Amharic, Spanish, Arabic, and Korean. Our producers have explored the issues that matter to the Arlington community and the Washington, D.C. metropolitan area from perspectives that are often ignored by the mainstream media. 

When you join the AIM family, you join hundreds of talented, dedicated volunteers who work together to bring independent news, information, art, and entertainment to our viewers. You also join an organization that is internationally recognized as a leader in community based, independent media training and production.

Welcome to the family.  

Don’t sit down.  Don’t be shy.  Don’t be quiet.  Get up.  Get involved.  Raise your voice!

Paul LeValley,
Executive Director of Arlington Independent Media
