Youth CORE Webinar: Transformative Media Organizing - Breaking Borders, Redefining Sanctuary

Community and Youth Media that Engages, transforms, Glitters and Builds!

This webinar is the second in a series around Sanctuary and Transformative Media Organizing. Click here to see a recording of the first webinar.

FCYO and Global Action Project, a social justice youth media organization, invite youth and community organizers, allies and funders to an interactive webinar lifting up impactful, community-based, transformative media organizing, in relation to campaigns that seek to expand the narrative framework around "sanctuary" and build local community defense infrastructure. We will share findings and recommendations from Global Action Project’s report, Media in Action: A Field Scan of Media and Youth Organizing in the United States, on ways that organizers, with support from funders and allies, can increase the scale and impact of transformative media organizing. And we will hear about innovative media approaches from leaders from MijenteBlack Youth Project 100 and the Hate Free Zone.

Join us as we take the reins of the narrative around sanctuary cities, give voice to the youth and community media-makers on the front lines of this movement, share approaches to transformative media organizing and tools for DIY media organizing.

Panelists will include:

  • B. Loewe, Communications Director, Mijente
  • Janaé Bonsu, National Public Policy Chair, BYP100
  • Roksana Mun, Director of Strategy and Training, DRUM
  • Karina Hurtado-Ocampo, Community Media in Action Coordinator, Global Action Project
