Community leaders and advocates will be gathering in DC next week for the sixth annual Advancing Justice Conference, the largest national conference focusing on civil and social justice issues impacting Asian American and Pacific Islander communities. It's happening September 25-26 at the Washington Hilton.
Whether you're a student, an activist, or just interested in a more equal America, the conference will including plenaries and workshops providing Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders and our allies with the opportunity to strategize and mobilize so we can have a lasting impact on all the issues we care about.
I will be speaking on a panel during the Thursday morning session "The Shifting Media Landscape: Strategies That Work" with Olivia Chow, Adriel Luis, Sandhya Bathija and moderator Karin Wang.
The Shifting Media Landscape: Strategies That Work
Topics: Advocacy, Capacity Building
Thursday, September 25th, 2014, 10:15AM-11:30AM
The communications landscape continues to shift rapidly every year, both with respect to more traditional forms of media (e.g., newspapers, TV) and newer forms of media, particularly online. How can advocates, campaigns and community groups effectively get out their stories and promote their issues in this changing environment? The speakers on this panel will share their expertise and experience in using blogging, audio and video programs, visual media, online campaigns and traditional media to educate, tell stories and advocate for causes. Through their collective efforts, the participants on this panel have played key roles in lifting up Asian American, Native Hawaiian and Pacific Islander, and/or progressive voices in the interest of larger societal and cultural change.
The conference is going to be a pretty great gathering people and ideas. Don't you want to be there too? Online registration is open through Monday, September 19. After that, you'll be required to sign up at the conference and pay the higher rates for on-site registration.
