"Envisioning Media Justice" Co-Presented/Sponsored by the NYCGMC anhtd MAG-Net

Betty Yu | Workshop Description:
In the face of increased media consolidation, we are witnessing an erosion of independent voices in the media landscape, the shrinking of public media resources and a lack of accountability by corporate media conglomerates to serve the people's interest. Organizing for media justice means confronting and transforming the structural racism, economic injustice and corporate control in our media and communications systems.

At the 2008 NYC Grassroots Media Conference "Speaking Truth to Power: Media Justice in our Communities" we explored how to empower disenfranchised communities - those most affected by media injustice - to fight for transformation of the media system. But this conversation isn't over.

Building on the ideas we shared back in March we are inviting conference attendees, social justice organizers, media makers, activists and concerned individuals to join us in a lively interactive workshop and discussion about the impact of corporate media on our communities, and how we can together advance a media justice agenda. more...  0 Comments

Justice for Filipino American Veterans (JFAV) |
The week-end of September 6 and 7th was not a typical day. On those two days, the 17th Festival of Filipino Arts and Culture (FPAC) came back with vengeance. While some detractors believed the FPAC is dead and some of them even did their own festival in the suburbs of Los Angeles , for two days, more than 15,000 people flocked to the festival grounds at Point Fermin in San Pedro and enjoyed the display of Filipino and Filipino American sounds and furies and affirmed that FPAC is vibrant, alive and filled with enthusiasm.

9/3: Dave Zirin:A People's History of Sports

Brecht Forum |

Standing in the tradition of rebel athletes, sports writers, and fans, Zirin critiques the way sports have been used by people in power to stoke the fires of war, corporate control, racism, sexism, and homophobia.
