This year, the NYC Grassroots Media Conference seeks to ask: What are the common threads inherent in our global struggles for social change and how does media contribute to our understanding of the root causes of injustice faced by world communities? From educating ourselves and our government leaders to spreading our messages and recruiting broader and more diverse constituencies into our campaigns, media is central to the struggle for social justice. Therefore, the fight for better access to and representation in the media is essential for advancing peace and justice both at home and abroad.

Join us for the 4th annual NYC Grassroots Media Conference as we explore these connections and strategies, and come together to demand a media system that will link our diverse communities, connect local and international struggles, and fight for social justice across boundaries and beyond borders. In addition to a full day of workshops and networking sessions there will be a political art installation and full day film festival and an exhibition room featuring displays by local organizations.

More than 200 local organizations and over 3,000 people have already participated in NYC Grassroots Media Coalition events. The conference offers anideal opportunity for presenting organizations and activists to reach out and gain visibility among the many conference attendees and the slew of participating organizations, and to network, make connections and form the basis for future partnerships. Information about how to submit proposals, art and film, purchase ads, reserve tables and register for the conference is available at
