AMY GOODMAN KEYNOTES GROUNDBREAKING COMMUNITY MEDIA SUMMIT
Calling all community radio activists, organizers and aspiring broadcasters in the northwest!
Join Reclaim the Media, Amy Goodman and some of the most creative community radio activists in the region for a groundbreaking event: the founding summit of the NORTHWEST COMMUNITY RADIO NETWORK. Grassroots community and college radio stations from Alaska to Oregon are getting together in Seattle, September 15th through the 17th, for a weekend of planning, workshops. Our featured keynote speaker is Democracy Now! host Amy Goodman.
The network we're planning will link together noncommercial college and community stations in Northwest states and provinces, allowing for program-sharing, collaborative news production, "sister station" mentoring and grassroots initiatives to support media democracy. We're joining forces to make community radio a richer and stronger voice in the Northwest.
