    January 30, 2013

  • Guess Who's Coming to Denver?

    November 26, 2012
    I'm thrilled to be one of the thousands of people who will be in Denver next April to take a stand for free speech online, independent voices and media that serve the public.

  • Three Days of Supreme Awesomeness

    November 16, 2012

    When my mom and dad visited Boston for their first National Conference for Media Reform, they were in shock. They thought that I just helped put on this tiny event that maybe 100 activists attended. They didn’t expect the thousands of people in attendance — or the sheer energy of the experience.

    The Boston conference was great, but we at Free Press are not content to rest on our laurels. We’re planning something even better for our next conference, which will be held in April in Denver.

  • The Conference Is Coming!

    August 6, 2012
    For the past few months I’ve been timeline-ing, goal setting, visioning and Excel charting. You know … the kind of stuff that requires mammoth pieces of flip-chart paper and plenty of colored markers. These are just some of the tools that’ll help me plan the program for the next National Conference for Media Reform, which will be held in Denver on April 5–7, 2013.

  • Save the Date for NCMR 2013!

    January 31, 2012

    Internet censorship. Massive media mergers. Attacks on public and independent media. Not to mention all that slanted, horse race-style election coverage that does nothing to inform or inspire.
