Non-profit, grassroots organization POOR Magazine announces the launch of its summer seminars at the Race, Poverty and Media Justice Institute. Beginning June 3rd, innovative seminars and workshops on poverty journalism, community organizing, advocacy and multimedia production will be open to students, media professionals and more. These revolutionary programs are ideal for people interested in learning and practicing untraditional, arts-centered, non-colonizing media justice and advocacy.
Join us on May 13th at 6:00 p.m. for an opportunity to learn more about the seminars and classes offered at Race, Poverty, and Media Justice Institute. Speak to class facilitators and learn how to approach issues of poverty, racism, disability, immigration, gentrification, police brutality and more in writing, art and media production through a socially-conscious lens, as well as how to facilitate access for unheard voices while exploring short and long term solutions to poverty and racism.
Past students will also be available to speak on their experience at the Race, Poverty, and Media Justice Institute and how the seminars prepared them to become community organizers, advocacy journalists, and socially conscience media producers.
Appetizers and childcare provided and POOR Magazine's own Po' Poets will perform spoken word.
