About Us

Prism was established in January 2019 to disrupt the toxic and durable national narratives  by centering people closest to the problems. Prism amplifies the stories, ideas, and solutions from invisibilized leaders, writers, and activists, moving us closer to a democracy that actually reflects America. 

Journalists of color make up only 17 percent of all newsrooms. When people of color, and other underrepresented communities, aren't helping to shape the news we read and watch, then their stories simply don’t get told.  That's why we created Prism: a new media experience that lifts up the voices, stories, and experiences of leaders and activists from underreported communities. It's time for our media to reflect all of us.

As the nonprofit affiliate to Daily Kos, our mission is to make visible the people, places, and issues currently underrepresented in our democracy. By amplifying the voices and leadership of people closest to the problems, Prism tells the stories no one else is telling.

Looking through a prism doesn't change the world around you, but it changes how you see it.
