Poet and novelist Audre Lorde said, “We were never meant to survive.” And yet our communities, in the face of rising hate and oppressive policies, continue to resist, continue to beat the odds stacked against us.
For communities of color, lower income families and the social movements they fuel, transforming systemic barriers and “beating the odds” in the 21st century demands a fair economy, connected communities, a political landscape of visibility, voice and power. To achieve this we need a media and technology environment that fuels real justice.
We call that “Media Justice” and recognize this as a crucial moment in our struggle for freedom—freedom from oppression, freedom to communicate.
