We are a group of Bay Area Media Makers who are going to Detroit to attend the Allied Media Conference 6/18-20,  and the US Social Forum 6/22-26.

We need to raise $5,000 to send seven of our folks representing diverse Bay Area organizations to Detroit!

The Allied Media Conference brings together media makers and social justice activists and organizers from around the country.  The AMC is great way to meet other folks who are doing great work.  Representing a diverse range of talents, there’s something here for everyone.  From Guerilla Theater, to pirate radio, from zines, to Mural Art, this conference cultivates leaders from the ground up.  Detroit Organizations are so welcoming to everyone.   Grace Lee Boggs, Invincible, Detroit Summer to name a few.
