Israel Social TV is an independent media organization (NGO) working to promote social change, human rights, social justice and equality as well as to mobilize its viewers towards activism. Operating since 2006, ISTV was established out of the belief that objective and diverse media is crucial for a healthy democracy in Israel. We report on social injustices and human right violations, and serve to amplify marginalized groups and voices that many times represent unpopular opinions, providing them with visibility and coverage they do not receive from mainstream media.
