Founded in 2015, Unicorn Riot is "a volunteer-operated decentralized media collective comprised of multimedia artists and journalists" operating in Boston, Denver, Minneapolis and New York City.
Unicorn Riot's mission, as explained on their Facebook page, is "to amplify the voices of people who might otherwise go unheard, and broadcast the stories that might otherwise go untold, as we further understanding of dynamic social struggles."
In pursuit of this mission they "are committed to producing media that exposes root causes of social conflict and explores sustainable alternatives in today's globalized world." To get an idea of what that entails, watch this short video that follows reporters on the ground.
Unicorn Riot's reporting focuses on the following areas: arts and culture, borders, community, Covid-19, eco, labor, LGBTQ+, police, prison, racism, social control, and tech.

Examples of recent reporting include nurses in Minnesota striking over lack of protective equipment, council members vowing to disband the Minneapolis police department and Mother Goose's Bedtime Stories - a cabaret event where marginalized artists share their talents and perform in front of a live audience.
