The movers and shakers getting it done every day will send us home with bold ideas and a vision for the future. You’ll leave this session energized and ready to take on the world! (We’re not kidding.)

Chancellar Williams of Free Press will serve as emcee. We’ll map our way forward with a lively discussion among media reform and media justice leaders. We’ll also hear from some remarkable young women who are challenging media stereotypes. To top it all off we’ll have some great speeches and a special performance from comedian Hari Kondabolu. This is it — the grand finale to three days of inspiration and celebration.
