RSVP for January 30th MAG-Net Digital Dialogue "Advancing Our Media Justice Agenda Under a New Administration"
You're Invited to the Media Action Grassroots Network (MAG-Net) January Digital Dialogue Edition
"Advancing Our Media Justice Agenda Under a New Administration"
Wednesday, January 30th: Digital Dialogue at 10am PST / 1pm EST (for 90 minutes)
Join MAG-Net as we kick off the New Year and host a national dialogue that looks at the new administration and its media and telecommunication priorities. What does it mean for our media justice issues with President Obama in his second term. How might the likely transitions at the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) impact our vision, and how will the changes in Congress, and in mayoral leadership affect our fights? Now more than ever, we have an opportunity to shape the public policy debate and influence communications and media policies that affect our communities and the social justice issues we care about.
Tune in to hear about what's coming down the pipeline for the media policies that impact our quality of life. How can we advance our fight for Internet freedom, mobile consumer protections, media ownership diversity, municipal broadband, public access television, community radio, and other issues? How do we increase media and technology access for low-income, native, rural and communities of color? This digital dialogue will feature media policy change and community media advocates who will shed light on the challenge and opportunities under this new administration.
