Northwest Progressive Conference, April 19-21

Eastern Washington will be the place to be April 19-21, as Washington State University in Pullman hosts the Northwest Progressive Conference. The conference provides a weekend of panel presentations, screenings, performances and workshops, focused on a variety of social change topics, including media, militarism, the environment, immigration, women's issues and racial justice.

Keynote speakers include two of our favorite independent media activists: Ruckus Society director Adrienne Maree Brown and the Oakland-based political artist Favianna Rodriguez. Media-related panel topics include Environment and media, Hip hop activism, Culture jamming, Grassroots radio, and 'Beyond reporting the news.' Conference attendance is free.
