This workshop will go over how to communicate effectively with the mainstream media. Though beholden to the corporations that control them, they can still be vehicles for kick ass radical messages!
We will discuss press announcements, press releases, making pitch calls, framing, strategic messaging and how to otherwise use story strategically in the context of your campaigns and with the mainstream media. Seasoned activists will discuss their recent work organizing mass actions in which the mainstream media carried some of the radical messages of the Occupy Movement.
This is a joint workshop offered by Rising Tide, the Portland Central American Solidarity Committee and the Occupy Portland PR committee!
