Elder Detroit activists in this Black, resilient city taught me that a crisis can be a turning point. This is a turning point – that much is clear. Many of us have never in our lives seen or been a part of such an unrelenting wave of outcry, of action, and of conversation that gets to the heart of racial justice in this country.

Allied Media Conference

Here's one weekend where you shouldn't plan your family reunion, wedding, or staff retreat: June 18 - 21, 2015. Save that date! It's the 17th annual Allied Media Conference, in Detroit.

Put it in your calendar and make sure others do too. We've got some smart save the date cards to help you spread the word. Share them with your office, community center, neighbors.

Contact us with your address and we will mail you a small stack and some AMC stickers too.

Last month, AMP's Executive Director, Jenny Lee, took part in a delegation of media justice activists to the Internet Governance Forum in Istanbul, Turkey. The delegation was organized by one of AMP’s long-standing supporters, the Media Democracy Fund. We are deeply appreciative of MDF for the opportunity to participate in this global conversation about the future of the Internet. Below, Jenny Lee shares her reflections from the Internet Governance Forum.
