Simply put, the Alternate Chan Alliance is an organization created with the purpose of congretating like-minded imageboard administrators/owners in an effort to protect values that we see as inalienable, the most important of which is free speech. Additonally, the ACA exclusively only hosts members that run imageboards, this is intentional. Sadly there has been a steady decline in people using imageboards, and many communities have been replaced by other forums/social media which more often than do not respect their users nor their privacy; the goal, is to preserve imageboards, their format, and the unique culture that they facilitate.
Imageboards that join the ACA are subject to meet a certain set of standards, and maintain those standards, they can be found below.
