Join us tomorrow for a CAAR planning meeting

CAAR organizers are meeting tomorrow (Friday, Oct 5) at 6:00 pm and invite anyone interested in helping us plan our Media event (planned for Dec 8, event name TBD) that will bring together community members as well as those working in the media industry. CAAR is working on this event collaboratively with KFAI & Main Street Project and will have all partners represented at this meeting.

To get you excited about it, we’ve been thinking about incorporating ideas like – creating a racial equity statement from community media, discussing opportunities for

citizen journalism, and offering tangible tools for both community members and those in media. It’s up to us planning the event to figure out exactly what we want so we welcome you to join this meeting and bring your voice to the table. After our meeting, more details of the event will follow.
