JOURNALISM & MEDIA JUSTICE IN THE SOUTH TRACK
Journalism & Media Justice in the South brings a racial equity lens to issues of media justice and offers participants hands-on engagement and opportunities to make their voices heard in the media. Topics can include: the media legacy of 1898 (when white racists rioted in Wilmington), how to exercise your rights to public records, how individuals can be a voice for truth in local media, how organizations can develop relationships to power their communications strategy, an exploration of prison phone and video visitation issues through a journalistic lens, and a discussion of Wilmington’s local news ecosystem.
Coordinators of this track are Alicia Bell, Fiona Morgan and Ren Smith.
CALL FOR PARTICIPATION
Tracks are looking for hands-on workshops, strategy sessions, and meet-ups that share stories, skills and best practices. Your session/workshop should be engaging and interactive. Including people who are direct stakeholders or who are directly impacted by the issue strongly aligns with Free Movement's goals of building grassroots power, and should be encompassed as often as possible.
Contact firstname.lastname@example.org with questions and comments.
Sessions must be accessible to all bodies, genders, and ages by creating a space that is inclusive and welcoming.
