News aggregation and original content
Report Injustice America is the hub for primarily state-focused, similarly structured news/media companies. Each aggregates news, and features varying extents of original content. RIA's stickler is that the news its affiliates feature must inform and sow unity in combating injustice as opposed to divisiveness.
RIA and its affiliates are not about turning average Americans against each other, but, instead, identifying injustices that plague them. For example, RIA affiliates expose instances of government waste, fraud, and abuse. However, they feature balanced accounts of related instances without encouraging undue hostility against U.S. government and/or public officials including U.S. law enforcement as well as court officers. RIA exposes instances of unlawful discrimination, but does not include news slanted primarily to pit any one group against another.
TACKLE INJUSTICE AT ITS LOCAL ROOT
Neighborhood > City > County > State > National
Through intense study and on-the-ground interaction, RIA founders confirmed that lack of proximity among U.S. social justice advocates substantially explains why their online social networking is more complaint-venting than action orientated. While RIA affiliates are created per U.S. state -- disagreements, power struggles, and questionable monetary influences are among problems that proliferate for grassroots good government advocates who operate state-wide in America. There are also practical obstacles attendant to travel distances that hinder regional, state, national, and international advocacy among grassroots good government advocates in America. So, RIA affiliates build community initiatives inspired by their respective news coverage, starting on a local basis. These efforts spread more effectively than those that begin on a wider basis. The local initiative (neighborhood, city, or county-focused) serves as a working model directly addressing constituent needs.
POT LUCK DINNER PROGRAM MODEL
Measurable support versus
organization- driven advocacy.
RIA founders observed that coalitions pursuing social justice in America tend to mimic the structure of shopping center food courts. But being loosely connected in that way (i.e., like fast food restaurants huddled in a mall), and maybe co-hosting activities from time to time does not foster enough unity to overcome America's most entrenched injustices on a grassroots basis. So, RIA prescribes to what it calls a
"Pot Luck Dinner" model for community organizing.
Wikipedia describes potluck as “(a) . . . gathering of people where each person or group of people may contribute a dish of food prepared by the person or the group of people, to be shared among the group.” This concept allows for the most independence, diversity, and unity.
The unity RIA strives for is more about being on the same page than locked into some single corporate identity or teamed with particular organizations/advocates. RIA affiliates build on what their respective teammates readily bring to the proverbial table for directly meeting constituent needs; not just who an advocate team member is or the clout he, she, or it otherwise wields. This approach helps keep us clear of mission-undermining agendas.
