You’re Invited to the Media Action Grassroots Network (MAG-Net)‘s Black History Month Digital Dialogue
February 26th MAG-Net Digital Dialogue: “The Fight of Media Justice and The State of Black America”
Last month, the #SOTU address focused on the “strides” that America has made regarding jobs, education and healthcare. Though notable, we know that vast inequity exists for our Nation’s black communities. Today African Americans experience a 12% unemployment rate, underfunded public schools, are uninsured, and are the most impacted by the school to prison pipeline. Much, if not all of this, driven by a corporate narrative that entrenches and exacerbates these pre-existing inequities.
In honor of black history month, and under the umbrella meme #blacklivesmatter, MAG-Net is presenting a digital dialogue that will allow presenters to highlight key policy fights, current campaigns, and organizing opportunities that bring together a range of legacy struggles for social change with a media justice lens.
Co-moderated by Dr. Artika Tyner of Community Justice Project & Betty Yu of Center for Media Justice
