We have it in our power to begin the world over again. - Thomas Paine
We at Know More Media believe in democracy - in the power of the people and that government, institutions, organizations, and industries derive their power from us, the citizen. If we don't care or if we are denied the ability to share our voice, abuses occur, tyranny prevails, and power is corrupted.
We see technology empowering a new segment of citizens that didn't have the means before (either through access or assets) to publish and distribute their thoughts, their opinions, their bias, their truth.
We at Know More Media support Unitus for being innovative and utilizing the financial tools of the 1st World to help millions of the poorest of the poor in the 3rd World.
Know More Media has supported and commented on the brilliant efforts of 3 kids and a video camera to build an amazing grassroots movement to help the night refugees of Northern Uganda.
Today, Know More Media, lends its support to Chartreuse and his efforts to get the straight scoop about potential human right violations and governmental abuses in New Orleans. Besides having several authors within the Know More Media business blog network lend their written support to Chartreuse, we also offer the following:
- $500 to help with the video crew
- Post the completed video on Know More Media and a number of the sites within the network
- An offer to pay one of the video crew at our author pay scale to write daily posts about their trip, their interviews, their pictures, their observations, and publish it on NewOrleansTruth.com, a site we will offer to put up and host to help tell the story.
If good things are happening, we want to hear about it. If the truth about human rights violations are being suppressed, we want to expose it. If businesses are going the extra mile to help rebuild the city, we want to know about it. If the government or any other organization is abusing its power, we want to help shine the bright light of public awareness upon it.
Chartreuse - let us know if any of this would be of use to you.
