natl-conf-media-reformIt’s official! I’ve been confirmed as a speaker at the National Conference for Media Reform in April. Through my work with Occupy, CODEPINK and independent activism, I’ve had the unique opportunity to see activism and social change from a variety of perspectives. Of course, I wouldn’t be doing this if I hadn’t met Paul. Truth be told, he’s the better photographer and the reason why I started using a camera (his camera) in the first place. Love leads you funny places. He’ll be there too as a real journalist, covering the event.

I’ll be speaking on a panel of 6, yes 6, on Occupy, Journalism and Activism: Media Making As Participatory Democracy with Chris Farone of the Boston Phoenix, Tim Pool of TimCast.TV, Arun Gupta of The Indypendent, Susie Cagle of and Joe MacarĂ© of TruthOut. We’re working together to figure out how we’ll format our session, so stay tuned for details. In the mean time, you should check out the schedule and the amazing list of presenters. The conference is going to cover topics and themes like:

  • + Policy & politics
  • + Social justice & the fight for media equality
  • + Journalism & public media
  • + Culture, creators & media makers
  • + Internet freedom, technology & innovation
  • + Workshops
  • + Tech & media playground


See you there!
