Philly Independent Media Center

The Philadelphia Independent Media Center (PhillyIMC) is a grassroots news organization serving Philadelphia and the surrounding areas.

PhillyIMC is also the local organizing unit of the global Indymedia network. PhillyIMC was among the first of over 200 Indymedia centers that have sprung up in cities across the U.S. and in over 50 countries world wide.

PhillyIMC seeks to play a major role in social, economic, and environmental justice movements by creating alternatives to the profit- driven agenda of the corporate media and providing an open forum for the “passionate and accurate tellings of truth.”

PhillyIMC includes a website (, radio station (Radio Volta), and community center and performance space (LAVA).
