I am a media activist, not only because I care about how policy issues affect our media system, but because I do not see a media system in this country that truly reflects and justly represents the people who live in this country.
ACMEBoston must connect with individuals and groups across race, class, gender, and sexual-orientation to create–not a media alternative–a media reality. ACMEBoston and ACMEBoston.org can and must be a place that challenges racism, classism, sexism, and homophobia to reflect what a real "media democracy" looks like.
This week, I hope to connect with individuals and groups working to break down our white supremacist media, culture, and society. I hope that through networking and finding possibilities for collaboration, ACMEBoston can work with others to create an all-inclusive approach to media education, production, and activism.
