12:00pm-1:00pm via ZOOM
$5 Members | $10 Nonmembers | $5 Students


A turbulent election year and a global public health crisis have left many of us wondering what we can do to drive meaningful change in our communities. How can we make our voices heard? Join us on September 15th as we hear about digital media advocacy that is people- and community-centered. In this conversation, Madison Orozco and Z Gorley, both from ArchCity Defenders (ACD) will speak to the various goals and values behind the digital media content published by ACD and the Close the Workhouse campaign.  They'll share how grassroots movements like this can help create a society where the promise of justice and racial equity is realized.
