After the breathtaking decision out of Ferguson not to indict the officer who killed Michael Brown and watching communities across the country take to the streets in protest, it feels like we are collectively searching for footing, context, and strength to continue this work. I thought it might be helpful to share the content from a recent meeting where Media Impact Funders and the Atlantic Philanthropies joined forces to discuss how media has made a difference in the debate of race and justice. This is the Storify from that conversation.
As creative practitioners, artists, educators, and leaders, we must stoke the conversations for racial justice and human rights at every turn. Feel free to share widely.
