Media Reform Report-back

Tue, 05/10/2011 - 7:00pm to 10:00pm

As consolidation and a lack of diversity in mass media grow in the U.S., a movement of media reformers, community media-makers and activists are resisting and standing in opposition to the corporate control of how we communicate. This past April, the National Conference on Media Reform in Boston was gathering spaces to address this. Austin media activists from Austin Airwaves, Austin Indymedia, The Rag Blog, The Texas Independent and other groups will report back on the issues covered at the conferences and how it affects Austin and our use of media to pursue democracy and justice.

Volunteers needed to spruce up and overhaul Eastside Memorial High School’s courtyard garden. Individual volunteers and small groups welcome. Projects will include building a native plant bed (laying border, transporting soil, and mulching bed) and restoring existing vegetable beds (weeding, soil amendment, and planting seeds). KAB’s Green Teens program will be working with teachers and students to use the garden beds year round as an outdoor learning space – join us to kick start this effort. This project can accommodate up to 25 volunteers.
