Democracy Now! | Adrienne Maree Brown of the Ruckus Society

The National Conference for Media Reform isn’t just a gathering on media policy. It’s also an educational event for hands-on media activism and citizen journalism. Adrienne Maree Brown is the executive director of the Ruckus Society, which trains and supports social justice groups in nonviolent direct action.

We can take back our media and we can take back our democracy. We have to educate ourselves about media reform and speak about this issue with others. We live in an age when we can reach large numbers of people in a short amount of time, and information spreads like wildfire. We can affect real and lasting change, and we can make a difference. All it takes is knowledge and a little effort on our part and we can begin to see the seeds of change take root and grow. Peace 🙂
