Call for Pitches

More Perfect Union Action is an advocacy journalism organization with a mission to build power for the working class. We cover politics, policy, labor, business, and economics news through a class lens, and we pair our video-first reporting with activism to help working people win policy fights.

We’re looking for talented content creators with a passion for news, social media, and progressive causes to join our nationwide network of video producers and reporters. We need you to tell the stories of the working class and their conditions, working Americans fighting for policy change and holding corporations accountable.

How to Pitch More Perfect Union:

  • Email your ideas to [email protected] with the word “Freelance Pitch” in the subject line.
    Please keep pitches short — we’re looking for ideas that quickly grab an audience’s attention. No need to send pages of dialogue or fully-formed scripts.  
  • Please include links to a portfolio and/or videos showcasing previously published content where you have been credited as the primary producer.
    Links should be to a video hosting site (Youtube preferred), file sharing site, or website.
  • Find more information about the issues we cover and the common story formats and approaches we use below.

Compensation for assigned freelance projects is $2,000 – $3,000 per piece. We review pitches on an ongoing basis and will reply directly if we’re interested in producing your piece.

Our coverage explores issues of:

  • Labor: union drives, strike activity, worker exploitation
  • Corporate accountability and consolidation
  • Housing
  • Climate & Energy
  • Health care/drug prices
  • Education
  • Elections
  • Pop culture as it relates to our mission (i.e. NFL turf field injuries and Love is Blind conditions on set)

We are seeking freelance producers and reporters that have story ideas — so please send us your pitches!

Some of our common story formats and approaches are:
