JUST MEDIA: LA Media Reform Summit 2011

  • Does the media tell your story fairly, if at all?
  • Are you happy with the coverage of issues you care about?
  • Does mainstream media inform you or distract you?
  • How do we use the media to bring about change?

If you are as concerned that our democracy is being undermined by the media, that communities are being harmed by the lack of coverage of local issues by mainstream media, and that diverse groups lack access to the media, now is the time to act.
