National Conference for Media Reform
The second conference for media reform (the first was in November 2003) will be put on in St. Louis this May 13 through 15. It would be great to have good NowPublic coverage and presence at this event, which aims to showcase and energize the growing movement to build a more democratic, honest media. Jim Hightower, Naomi Klein, Al Franken, Amy Goodman, and George Lakoff are some of the big names signed on to speak.
I'm registered and will be reporting on it but I don't have a digital camera. They have a time for attendees to present their organizations, though I'm not sure NowPublic would qualify as a "non-profit, non-commercial organization." Anyhow there are lots of opportunities for networking and getting to know other people trying to change the news. Hope to meet some NowPublic people in St. Louis, in or out of the conference.
