6. They're a protest coverage non-profit that has been around since Occupy Wall St.

Most people know them from the days of their coverage of the Dakota Access Pipeline protests at Standing Rock. They stayed throughout the worst of winter weather.

From wikipedia:

Unicorn Riot is a decentralized, non-profit left-wing[1][2][3] media collective that originated online in 2015. The group is known for reporting on far-right organizations and sources of racial and economic injustice in the US.

The non-hierarchical media organization operates in the US cities of Boston, Denver, Minneapolis/St. Paul, and Philadelphia. They produce live streams of political rallies and protests[4] and are funded by viewer donations.

Unicorn Riot currently has around 10 members, based in Boston, Denver, Minneapolis, and Philadelphia.[5][4] The media collective is non-hierarchical and makes decisions based on consensus.[6]

Unicorn Riot has maintained a channel on livestream.org since May 2015.[6] Besides creating live video of protests, the media collective also engages in investigative journalism, producing web series, video packages, blogs, and podcasts.[4]

They have published documents obtained through open records requests, including a copy of the Denver Police Department Crowd Management Manual.[citation needed] They also produce the weekly news show Deprogram. Unicorn Riot releases its content under a Creative Commons license.[7]
