Real Talk: Has Media Misportrayed You?

The need for a fair and accurate media should be a concern to all of us. Communities of color and immigrants have long been misportrayed by media — in news stories, skits, commercials, or illustrations, and across all mediums, whether TV, radio, or the big screen.

It is time we stop letting media define us, our people, our history, our struggles. We write our own stories. We hold them accountable to do a better, more fair job.

Join us at our event next month:

Racism in Media: A Community Conversation
Community Action Against Racism (CAAR) and Main Street Project are providing a free forum and media action training for community members. Facilitators will engage attendees in honest conversations about racism in the media and discuss what can be done about it. This is the first of a series of town hall forums and trainings focused on undoing racism in media.
Lunch will be provided. As space is limited, an RSVP is required. Please send email to caar.tc[at]gmail.com to secure your seat.
Saturday, June 2, 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.
Northwest Area Foundation
60 Plato Blvd. E., Suite 400, St. Paul, MN 55107
