Weds, Oct 20: Media, Meet Justice!

Join RTM and the Northwest Media Action Grassroots Network at Hidmo (20th and Jackson, Seattle) on Oct. 20 for an evening of media justice strategizing and discussion: Media? Meet Justice.

We'll hear from local MAG-Net representatives who traveled to Detroit this summer for the Allied Media Conference and the US Social Forum, reflecting on intersections between media justice and immigrant rights, food justice, racism and economic oppression, among other issues. Then we'll have a creative, strategic conversation about how community media, media justice and social justice groups can work together in the Northwest to strengthen the movement for social change.

Bring your questions and your ideas about current hot-button media issues such as media racism, affordable Internet, net neutrality, low power community radio, and local public access TV. Learn how we can take action through Reclaim the Media and the MAG-Net coalition, and help us create our strategic priorities for 2011!
