SAVE THE DATE! 6th Annual NYC Grassroots Media Conference
Saturday, May 30, 2009

9am-6pm: Hunter College, 68th St & Lexington Ave, 5th Floor

Please join us at the 6th Annual Conference: HOPE to ACTION

The enthusiasm that mobilized for President Obama's historic 2008 election campaign ignited the hopeful hearts of a country at a crossroads. But even as we celebrate, we must continue to confront the serious concerns that impact our communities. In this moment of great opportunity and great challenge, the NYC Grassroots Media community asks: what is the media's role in catalyzing -- and realizing -- social justice?

Please join us as we work together to chart the road forward, and to build a new media: one that confronts injustice; lends voice to our creativity, diversity, and communities; and above all, lays the foundation to convert our collective HOPE for social justice into effective and immediate ACTION toward change.

MARK YOUR CALENDARS: Call for proposals to be released in the coming week.
Workshop proposals will be due April 15.
The deadline for advertising and exhibits will be May 1.
