It is true that the US Press Association, Freelance Press Association & US Free Public Press are all new organizations in comparison to the Mega Media Conglomerates that exist today. Even those large, main stream media outlets once had humble beginnings. The US Press Association unofficially began in 1999 and the company US Press Association LTD was officially formed in 2001. 
The US Press Association was started in an effort to leverage rights, privileges and accessability of freelancers with that of the more well know networks and main stream media journalists. The concept of having strength in numbers was the underlying theme and vision for the organization. The Freelance Press Association was started that same year, but has since merged with the US Press Association. Some of the earliest members of the US Press Association were able to access and report from venues, events and scenes of breaking news that were once commonly restricted to freelance journalist. Recognizing the importance that "NEW MEDIA" was going to have on the world we live in, the US Press Association had and still has the vision that freelance journalist of all types need an outlet for their stories (YOUR STORIES), and an organization that will be there to help and support them every step of the way. The US Press Association also offers membership to the US Free Public Press. The US Free Public Press is a resource for those who are not freelance or part-time journalist, but have an appreciation for various forms of journalism and may wish to contribute the occasional story. People interested in joining the US Free Public Press are issued an ID card as well. They are free to submit stories, photos, video and other forms of media for website submission. Having the member ID, phone confirmation of their membership and their profile listed in a verifiable database help to increase their odds of maximizing the impact of the news event they want to cover by being granted certain privileges. 
One point that needs to be clear is that the US Press Association does not give out press passes. What we do for our members is issue a US Press Association Press ID. This ID clearly identifies you as a member of our organization and your profile information is able to be found in our database of journalists. What the US Press Association will do is help our members acquire press passes to various venues, events etc. We often serve as a liaison between our members and event coordinators or directors. We also issue members assignment letters to various news worthy events, places, venues etc. We urge you not to be deceived by some of the offers that are out there. Do your research! Track where YOUR MONEY is going! You may be surprised to find where your money will be headed, and maybe more surprised to discover it's not even in the United States. If you choose to obtain one of the many "Press Passes" that are being sold simply to attempt gaining backstage access to a concert, or attempt to interview a celebrity let us offer you a better solution. Just join the US Press Association. We WILL make every effort to help you in your pursuit to cover a great story or event. We will offer the support you may need, or answer the questions you may have. Become part of a legitimate movement, a legitimate organization. We are a member based organization and we are passionate about news and media, and we want to help you in any way we can. If you don't care about joining an organization that will help you, do yourself a favor and check out ebay. You will save yourself quite a bit of money and some embarrassment when either ID is rejected.     
Thank you for taking a moment to read this, feel free to send us an email or call us if you have any questions or need any further information.

Poetry, Prose and Witty Texting: The Conversation on The Street
Editorz, 27 Aug 06:00 AM
“True poetry cares nothing for poems” says Raoul Vaneigem, the Belgium Situationist who taught us that we are creating our lives twenty-four hours a day, in his book “The Revolution of Everyday Life.” The act of living is a certain poetry in itself, we have decided. Jef Aeorosl pays tribute to Andy Warhol on the […]
The Wonderfully Dismal Kingdom of Banksy
Editorz, 26 Aug 06:00 AM
Banksy has ventured into the entertaining resort business. One that would possibly be your last resort. A scathing social and political critique of any number of targets that routinely come under the purview of this artist/curator/commentator/showman, this big tent brings everyone inside for a beating. Rampant capitalism, civic hypocrisy, the war industry, advertising deceit, an […]
What’s The Word, Bird? Fine Feathered Friends Soar On The Street
Editorz, 25 Aug 12:02 AM
It’s a convivial if embarrassing juxtaposition when you witness a bird in flight in this brutish man-made city environment, so unrefined are all of our efforts next to his. He rewards us with a song or a soaring performance in air, and despite our heavy slow selves anchored to this pavement, we shield the sun […]

BSA Images Of The Week: 08.23.15
Editorz, 23 Aug 12:02 AM
Such a pleasure and honor to give a tour to Brooklyn Museum members yesterday – mainly because of the mixture of people who traipsed through Brooklyn streets with us: older, younger, academic, street smart, curiosity seeking, students, teachers. The questions and observations helped push our perspectives wider. Good to be schooled by someone who knew […]

In the history of Public Places such as Parks, you may never hear of avoiding people from coming or even witnessing army forces or guns. Since Afghanistan experienced decades of war and violence in addition of low rate of literacy and urbanism, you will see a horrible contrast when you watch a park from the fence surrounding it! It’s not fair to claim the illiterate ramblers and bazar crowd,for being unfamiliar with citizenship, culture and urbanism, all the time. There are numerous NGOs’ Civil Society organizations, Social Commentators, Semi Intellectuals and many other bluffers all around the country shouting, the reforms, changes and amendments, but are they really fighting for it?? Millions of Dollars came for Rehabilitation of Afghanistan, and a huge amount assigned for the Civil Society projects, implemented by the mentioned organizations, National or International. It’s obvious that the most of the moneys are spent on Constructions and useless seminars, meetings, workshops, training sessions and courses, where actions and real works” Touchable” are so vital. Let’s just concentrate on the recent issue I stressed on! Despite the security problems, crucial situations and wars all over the country, cant the claimed civil societies, NGOs’ and Cultural Departments , let the Public Places and Parks to be really public for everyone’s use, in addition of mainlining their security? But not closing the door and avoiding people to inter by Army forces and huge guns? Don’t we deserve to relax a while, after a busy tension- full, horrible, risky day, with possibility of dying, kidnapping or looted any moment? I hope us, the ones claiming and expecting changes just think a while and see around. And I wish the international donors and supporters to assess and research more, when funding projects. Please teach us how to fish, but not giving us a sardine!!
