Needed by all.
The news is the first step to understanding what happens in our world and communities. Yet, about one in three Americans say they frequently see political news stories online that are made up (Pew Research Center).
Everyone deserves to know what is really going on. We strive to connect people, particularly young adults, with qualified news sources, so they make informed choices for their – and our – future.
Starting conversations about important events and issues is difficult. But that doesn’t make it any less meaningful.
It’s a challenge that we should all strive to overcome.
Soap Public Media is ready to help.
Help us realize the vision.
“It’s my dream scenario to have a place where I can trust the sources and know that I can see all different points of view.”
India, Age 16
Soap Public Media is a non-profit (501c3) with a robust platform that supports a vision for bringing trusted sources, clarity and context directly to youth through the Soap app for iOS , Soap on the Web, and Soap's News Literacy Guide & Exercises for journalism, social and media literacy programs in universities & high schools.
With Soap, users get the issues first then they get a broad range of perspectives for every issue — not the noise or personalized bias inherent in “What’s Trending” in social media, or the possible slant of getting all their news from one news service.
The Soap Public Media team is experienced in journalism, education, design and technology. We combine humans with AI to insure the integrity and quality of Soap.
We need your support to realize this vision, improve the behind-the-scenes efforts and the experience of using Soap.
