Volunteer: NYC Grassroots Media Coalition: Call for Volunteer Organizers

Looking to get involved with a local media justice organization or know someone who calls media justice their jam?

Please spread the word...


Who: A growing alliance of media makers, artists, independent media organizations and community-based organizations who are interested in working towards a more democratic media in NYC.
What: The NYC Grassroots Media Coalition operates as a volunteer collective. Decisions are made based on the consensus model.

When:  We will have a big meeting for all current and potential organizers on Wednesday, September 23rd, at 7pm (location TBD). Our meetings and activities are ongoing, and our big annual conference will be in March 2010.
Come out and help organize important media gatherings in NYC! Get to know grassroots media makers and social justice organizers from around the city while working to change our city's media landscape. Network, learn about media and make friends!

We're looking for people to join our core organizing team. Starting in late September, you'll work closely with other organizers to make this the most diverse and exciting GMC yet. So come & learn about the organizing process and meet the rest of the group.

The NYC Grassroots Media Conference organizing committee actively seeks participation from different ethnic and racial backgrounds, sexual orientations, classes and physical abilities.

If interested in joining the collective, please email:
