JAM Exists to Empower the People

We are committed to promote free speech, civic engagement, artistic expression, and public dialog by enabling easy access to the expanding and ever-changing media world. You don’t have to move away or spend thousands of dollars on filmmaking and audio equipment —there’s video equipment and a community here to support your work. Content you create can go on CATV’s cables and stream on www.uvjam.org. If you want to have a broader distribution, CATV is part of NH & VT media exchanges.
