MAG-Net's Learning Community:

  • The Media Justice Leadership Institute (MJLI) is a four-day media organizing school for progressive leaders working at the intersection of social justice and media change- with a unique focus on organizers of color and rural organizers.  The focus of this year’s Institute is mobile justice, access and power. Topics include the critical debate over mobile phones, the Universal Service Fund, wireless issues, an Open Internet, consumer protections, mergers, and the cost of calls to prisons.  With leading trainers, cutting edge tools, multidisciplinary learning methods, and opportunities for advocacy- the Media Justice Leaders Institute strengthens the skills, strategies, and relationships of emerging media organizers.
