2011 Media Justice Leadership Institute
Community organizers from across the country came together in February 2011 in Washington DC. Our goal was to develop skills to take on wireless policies that hurt low-income communities. Watch the slideshow!
The Media Justice Leadership Institute is a four-day media organizing school for progressive leaders working at the intersection of social justice and media change- with a unique focus on organizers of color and rural organizers.
The focus of this year’s Institute was telephone access, including the critical debate over mobile phones, the Universal Service Fund, wireless issues, calling cards, and the cost of calls to prisons. With leading trainers, cutting edge tools, multidisciplinary learning methods, and opportunities for advocacy- the Media Justice Leaders Institute strengthens the skills, strategies, and relationships of emerging media organizers.
