The purpose of the Independent Media Strategy Summit is to think through - in a participatory, concrete way - how progressives can build a national, independent news source.

The Summit will be a collaborative gathering of experienced media veterans, scholars, activists & whistleblowers to assess and deploy our most powerful tools and messages.

Bring your best ideas, an open mind, and an urgent desire for change.

We hope to discover in this moment of Constitutional crisis, ecological peril and widening war, if a roomful of top investigative journalists, whistleblowers and indy-media all-stars can transform the way Americans perceive and support their world.

Participants include:
