AMC2014 was four beautiful days in June: learning, building, exploring, and dancing in Detroit. But parallel to that universe another Allied Media Conference was taking place… on the Internet.
What is the AMC?
"Allied Media Conference: Create / Connect / Transform" is our new video offering an answer to that question. It features footage shot at AMC2014 and interviews with conference organizers and participants.
Allied Media Projects will present at this weekend's "Money for Our Movements"conference in Baltimore, Maryland. The conference, presented by the Grassroots Institute for Fundraising Training offers grassroots fundraising trainings for social justice organizers.
AMP Executive Director Jenny Lee will present on July 19 at the Netroots Nation conference. The topic of the presentation is "48217: What One of the Country’s Most Polluted Zip Codes Can Teach Us about Environmental and Digital Justice"
At the closing ceremony of AMC2014, Detroit water rights activist Lila Cabbil called on AMC attendees to "wage love" for a just water system in Detroit. She invited us to use our media-making and our networks to help bring an end to the tens of thousands of water shutoffs taking place throughout the city.
