Eradicating Offensive Native Mascotry

EONM (Eradicating Offensive Native Mascotry) is a grassroots organization that is dedicated to informing individuals and mobilizing groups to combat the public misappropriation of Native American imagery, and calling out entities complacent with, as well as ones directly profiting from, blatant racism.

Hollow Earth Radio

Hollow Earth Radio is the Pacific Northwest’s freeform online radio station that presents a forum for underrepresented music, sounds and perspectives. We are located in the Central District, Seattle’s historically African American neighborhood and later in 2016, we will begin broadcasting terrestrially (KHUH 100.3 FM) as a Low Powered FM station. Through the lens of media justice, we work directly with the community to build a training curriculum for people to become citizen journalists, DJ’s, sound engineers and more while providing a venue for artists and performers to showcase their work. We are also working towards creating news programing where we can consistently and artfully cover the issues in our region.

Dignity and Power Now

Dignity and Power Now (DPN) is a grassroots organization based in Los Angeles that fights for the dignity and power of incarcerated people, their families, and communities. In doing so DPN wages a fight for all lives because the prison industrial complex forms an imaginative limit on everyone’s capacity to envision freedom and liberation. Dignity and Power Now has several projects including an activist coalition, an artist collective, a zine, a research and reporting group, a leadership institute, and even a reentry program inside a state prison. Immediate campaign focuses include establishing comprehensive and effective civilian oversight of the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department and allocating the money from the two billion dollar jail plan into mental health diversion programs and community health centers.
