The Indypendent "is a New York-based free newspaper published 17 times a year on Fridays to our print and online readership of more than 200,000. It is produced by a network of volunteers who report, write, edit, draw, design, take photos, distribute, fundraise and provide website management. Since 2000, more than 650 citizen journalists, artists and media activists have participated in this project. Winner of more than 50 New York Community Media Alliance awards, The Indypendent is dedicated to empowering people to create a true alternative to the corporate press by encouraging people to produce their own media. The Indypendent is funded by subscriptions, donations, grants, merchandise sales, benefits and advertising from organizations with similar missions. We accept submissions that look at news and culture through a critical lens, exploring how systems of power — economic, political and social — affect the lives of people locally and globally. The Indypendent reserves the right to edit articles for length, content and clarity.

"The Indypendent is affiliated with the New York City Independent Media Center". [1]
