Who we are

Founded by a Jew, a Christian and a Muslim, Alternate Focus is working for peace and justice by offering the American public media which shows another side of Middle Eastern issues.

AF has over twenty producers who help with every aspect of video production, broadcasting, and dvd distribution to libraries and schools. Alternate Focus has been the subject of articles in Citybeat and the San Diego Union Tribune.

Several independent video producers are affiliated with Alternate Focus and make their documentaries available to us for broadcast. Nationally recognized organizations are working with us as suppliers of content and as distributors. We continue to seek affiliation with producers, distributors, and interested organizations.

In July 2004, Alternate Focus was granted the status of a nonprofit corporation under Tax Code 501C-3. This makes the organization eligible for grants and enables us to receive tax-deductible donations.

Our Mission
We are dedicated to offering to the public media that provides balance to existing coverage of Middle East and related issues.
