Sunday Night on MNN: Taking Our Power Back

If this month’s local elections taught us anything, it’s that everyday New Yorkers have the power to create real change. This Sunday on MNN, watch programming that features bold individuals who are fighting for truth and justice.

First at 7pm, Council Member Helen Rosenthal and her guests discuss tenant harassment and how to handle it on “Represent NYC.” Then at 8pm tune in to “The Radical Imagination,” for a discussion about the demand for independent journalists in today’s media landscape.

7pm - Represent NYC: Laws Aim to Stop Construction Harassment Nightmare 

Over the summer, new laws were passed that give renters the right to sue and be awarded damages from landlords who use invasive construction projects as a way to drive out tenants.

This Sunday on “Represent NYC,” Council Member Helen Rosenthal talks with Urban Justice Center’s Jane Li, tenant advocate Susan Schwartz and Goddard Riverside Law Project’s Dan Evans about construction as a form of tenant harassment and what renters can do to defend their rights.

Watch "Represent NYC" this Sunday at 7pm on MNN1 (Spectrum 34 & 1995, RCN 82, FiOS 33) and MNN's new HD Community Channel (Spectrum 1993) or stream it live on mnn.org!

8pm - The Radical Imagination: Imagining a Radical Grassroots Journalism

In a world dominated by corporately controlled media, the news that needs to be shared is often buried under propaganda and never sees the light of day. That’s why it’s up to the public to tell their own stories through grassroots, independent journalism.

This Sunday on “The Radical Imagination,” sociologist Jim Vrettos talks with justice-focused social media reporters, Abdus and Jacquie Luqman, about the demand for independent journalists in today’s political climate and what we can learn from legendary reporter I.F. Stone.

“The Radical Imagination” airs every Sunday at 8:00 pm on MNN1 (Spectrum 34 & 1995, RCN 82, FiOS 33), MNN’s HD Community Channel (Spectrum 1993) or streaming live on mnn.org. Catch the repeat every Thursday at 8:00 pm on MNN4 (FiOS 36, RCN 85, Spectrum 67 & 1998), MNN’s HD Community Channel (Spectrum 1993) or streaming live on mnn.org.
