The goal of this one-day event is to activate a local hub of media makers, activists, artists, and researchers working towards social justice in Philadelphia. This will be the first step toward a long-term plan to develop stronger networks of interaction in Philly with the goal of strengthening ties, sharing ideas and resources, and forging connections and collaborations.

The media activism gathering is co-sponsored by Temple’s Klein College of Media and Communication; The Media, Inequality & Change Center (UPenn and Rutgers); the Center for Advanced Research in Global Communication (UPenn); the Media Activism Research Collective (UPenn); The School of Social Policy & Practice (UPenn); and Rutgers School of Communication and Information. The planning group also includes PhillyCAM and Media Mobilizing Project.

This event is invitation only. For more information, contact briar.smith@asc.upenn.edu.
