How to Get Press for Peace and Progressive Issues
Thursday, April 26 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Workbar Central Square, 45 Prospect St., Cambridge

Speakers:

*Chris Faraone and Jason Pramas*

*Boston Institute for Nonprofit Journalism and DigBoston*

As peace activists and progressive organizations struggle to make
themselves heard in a media environment that rewards the rich, powerful,
and institutionally entrenched, it’s important that we develop the skills
necessary to get our message out.

On* Thursday, April 26th*, activist journalists Chris Faraone, Jason
Pramas, and special guests TBA will hold a workshop at Workbar Central
Square (45 Prospect Street, Cambridge) *from 6-8 p.m*. to show organizers
learn how to get press, develop relationships with journalists, target
messages, build robust, lasting networks of communication, and write
effective op-eds.

Chris, a nationally-known investigative and music journalist, is editorial
director of Boston Institute for Nonprofit Journalism (BINJ) and
editor-in-chief of DigBoston, the Hub’s alternative newsweekly.

A veteran photojournalist and longtime social justice advocate who was lead
organizer of the 2004 Boston Social Forum and published the online
left-wing news outlet Open Media Boston from 2008 to 2015, Jason is network
director of BINJ and executive editor of DigBoston.

Join us April 26th and equip yourself, your organization, or your cause
with these invaluable tools and start reaching the audiences you need to
effect real change.   *There is no charge, but please sign up in
