Thanks for Joining Us for 6/2 Racism in Media Event
A huge thank you to those who attended CAAR’s June 2 event – Racism in the Media: A Community Conversation. We had great conversations together on how racism in the media has been used historically, how we analyze contemporary examples of racism being perpetuated today, and we got some tangible tools of how we can help keep media accountable and how we be a part of owning and creating our own content as well. Thank you to Main Street Project and PAVE-MN for co-sponsoring the event, thanks to all those that donated, and thanks to all the volunteers that made the event possible. You can check out photos from our June 2 event on CAAR’s Facebook page. Please continue to join our Facebook group, follow us on Twitter and go to our blog to stay in touch with us.
This event was part one of a series of discussions CAAR is hoping to do. What you shared with us at our most recent event will help inform our fall/winter forum that we’d like to specifically invite journalists and others in media to attend and learn from.
