MNN is proud to be partnering with the Grassroots Media Conference for the fifth year! Check out all the MNN and YC workshops at the GMC on Sunday, March 2nd at Hunter College!
What: NYC Grassroots Media Conference
When: Sunday, March 2nd all day
Where: Hunter college, East 68th St. and Lexington Ave.
Why: Because we all need some Media Justice!
For the past four years, the GMC has explored the political dimensions of media and how it shapes our lives. In developing relationships between community and media organizations, the NYC Grassroots Media Coalition is working to re-imagine issues of access to, control of, and power over our media system. That means defining our struggle as a struggle for Media Justice.
Join MNN and the Youth Channel at the 2008 NYC Grassroots Media Conference as we seek to define our understanding of and relationship to Media Justice as a community, and explore how we can not only envision an ideal world, but make this vision a reality.
