3rd Annual NYC Grassroots Media Conference Call for Participation



FEBRUARY 11, 2006

Brought to you by the NYC Grassroots Media Coalition. A project of Paper Tiger Television
Hosted by the Department of Media Studies and Film New School University

The fight for media democracy will not be won by academics, or lobbyists, or people representing one race, class or gender working separately. In order to
effect change in the control and access to media, grassroots leadership is needed from diverse constituencies who understand that access and fair representation in the media is essential for realizing victories in social justice.

Since 2004 the Grassroots Media Conferences have convened thousands for a weekend of workshops, skills-sharing, dialogue, debate and strategizing sessions about media making, media policy and how to use media to support grassroots organizing efforts.

This year we are looking for innovative and collaborative panels as well as action oriented projects to keep attendees motivated and active long after the
