IPS North America is not a newcomer to the world of international media.

IPS North America, incorporated in 1997 under New York Law, is the result of the vision and efforts of a group of journalists from around the world who were convinced of the need for a different voice among the mass media, one that provided an independent view of the events that shocked humankind, one free of ties to any state or political or economic group. The aim was to give voice to the countries of the South, the socially excluded ethnic groups and populations, the poor and the marginalized.

IPS is a leading provider of information on global issues backed by a network of journalists in more than 100 countries. Its clients include more than 3,000 media organizations, civil society groups, academics and other users. IPS focuses its news coverage on the events and global processes affecting the economic, social and political development of peoples and nations.

In addition to in depth daily wire-service coverage of the UN and the WTO, IPS produces a Daily Journal targeted at the UN community which is distributed 5 days a week.

The primary user groups of IPS North America's product are media editors, policy-makers at the United Nations, specialized UN agencies, development agencies and educational institutions, public institutions and research institutions.

The challenges of our times are the greatest that IPS has faced in its history, but the current state of the communications media leaves an enormous space for our agency, and it is our responsibility to fill it.

Now, more than ever, among the voices that report and analyze world events, an independent and alternative voice is needed: a voice that informs from the viewpoint of the countries and peoples excluded from the benefits of globalization, a voice that takes the gender perspective into account and gives the multifaceted actors of organized civil society the recognition they deserve. We need a strong voice, one that is not merely testimonial. In this sense, the development of IPS itself has created previously unimagined opportunities for rapid growth.

In a scenario of increasing concentration of the global media in the hands of transnational corporations, to be competitive is ever more difficult for an independent media outlet: more resources are always needed, and are difficult to obtain without losing independence.
Independence is needed to maintain IPS's role as critical witness, un-beholden to any political or economic power. Resources are needed to maintain IPS's presence in all global issues and geographic areas, and to transcend the marginal, testimonial role to which discordant voices are usually relegated.

As always, but now more than ever, the only resources to which IPS can aspire come from those in government, international organizations, civil society, the cultural and academic worlds, corporations and trade unions, who - regardless of whether they agree with the agency's editorial line - believe in the need for a voice like that of IPS.

This is why we are turning to you this time. IPS has enormous responsibilities and great possibilities for development. To meet its obligations and to make the most of opportunities, IPS needs to project itself into the future, to live and to grow.

IPS North America is a tax exempt organization under Internal Revenue Service Code Section 501(c)3.
