Below is a list of COMMERCIAL media outlets to inspire you. The newsdesk or newstip emails are usually the best ones. You can call up the main numbers and ask for the newdesk email address, or ask where to send Press Releases.

PLEASE add contacts here as you find them, so that other activists can use them, too. We're all in this together!
