After months of hard work, planning and implementation, we are very proud to present the newly designed Media Action Grassroots Network website chock full of new community features to support our network in connecting our media justice work. The redesign of the site was driven by grassroots community suggestions—i.e. more interaction, viral tools, tools for action and the ability to become a one-stop-shop for community-based, media policy change!
With over 150 grassroots member organizations, as well as a new online Media Justice Action Team, the Media Action Grassroots Network is now poised to truly represent a network of grassroots community organizations working together for media policy change to end poverty, eliminate racism, and ensure human rights.
Please take some time to orient yourself with our site and if you would like to participate in leaving comments on our blogs and videos and adding to our forum conversations please register for an account–it's easy!
