National Conference For Media Reform

The 2013 National Conference for Media Reform is over! Free Press would like to thank all the conference-goers and presenters who gathered in Denver to fight for better media.

We tweeted, streamed, blogged and snapped pics throughout our amazing three-day event, so take some time to check out our conference coverage. You can visit the full archive of video and audio recordings here. And you can download a copy of our report here.

Poem

We are butterflies without borders

Riots without race
 
We are grasshoppers without gender

Protest without place

The marching band is lonely

And the drum solo is too
 
We used to dance into battle with music

We used to wage peace by foot

 

by Hakim Bellamy, thanks to Favianna Rodriguez, Jeff Chang and amalia deloney for helping co-write this short poem in their workshop!

Where else but at the National Conference for Media Reform can you hear panelists in one room discussing drone warfare in Afghanistan and in another debating the relative merits of Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman?
