About AMP

Allied Media Projects (AMP), created approximately 20 years ago, cultivates media for liberation. Rooted in Detroit and connected globally, AMP is a network of media makers, artists, educators, and technologists working for social justice. Through its programs, AMP envisions and attempts to model a world in which we cultivate care and joy, dismantle harmful systems, and assume responsibility for creating new and liberatory ways of being.

AMP’s current programs include:

  • The Sponsored Projects Program which provides fiscal sponsorship, training and capacity building to people and projects aligned with AMP’s mission;
  • The Allied Media Conference, a convening of AMP’s vast network where participants celebrate, strategize and skillshare;

  • The LOVE Building, a 27,000 square foot real estate project that AMP is designing as a social justice hub, in collaboration with five other Detroit-based non-profits.

Allied Media Projects currently has 20 core organization staff and an additional 38 staff via our fiscally sponsored projects. AMP has an annual core organization budget of $5.5 million, and we manage an additional $10 million in funds on behalf of our 150 fiscally sponsored projects. AMP is governed by a 7-member Board of Directors.
