Wishful Thinking

Hi everyone!

So here is a tangible wish. This year I am planning to attend the Allied Media Conference in Detroit, June 20-22. The Allied Media Conference cultivates media strategies for a more just and creative world. It is the primary point of intersection in the U.S. for alternative media makers and committed social justice activists and this year's theme is "Our Evolution Beyond Survival: Media Strategies for the Next Ten Years." We will be strategizing about sustainability and reclaiming the media for our urgent needs. This conference is not just about talking, but doing as well. Check out some of the amazing events and articles from last year's conference.

You can help me get to the conference through a donation to cut the cost of airfare and housing when in Detroit. Just click the paypal button below. Give $1, $5, whatever you can spare!

I am super excited this year because SpiritHouse and Youth Noise Network are organizing to bring the young people I work with in Durham to the conference. Also, I am part of the keynote for the conference.

I'm grateful for your support for this conference. Just click the paypal button (indicate location). Give $1, $5, whatever you can spare! Let me know if you want your donation to go straight into the funds for the young people...I'll be just as grateful for that!

Also help these other lovely women of color trying to get to the conference!

Are you thinking of heading to the Allied Media Conference as well? Register now!
