Iâ??ve always wanted to run into a newsroom and yell "Stop the Presses!"
(What communications nerd hasnâ??t?) But since actual printed newspapers
are becoming a thing of the past, I am taking to the internet to
â??yellâ?? it: STOP THE PRESSES!
*Stop the Presses! is a monthly live webcast* produced by the Center for
Story-based Strategy and hosted by Joseph Phelan. The program will pull
together organizers, leaders, and communications experts to look at
communications lessons from ongoing campaigns, and explore
communications innovations that are advancing social justice movements
across the United States.
We will invite the leading edges of the labor movement and
communications strategists with bold ideas to talk with each other and
take your questions! Thatâ??s right, viewers (thatâ??s you!) can use
twitter, youtube, and google+ to engage with the panelists.
The pilot episode of Stop the Presses! is on *Monday December 9, 2013 at
1 PM PST/4 PM EST* and we hope you'??ll join us
We will talk with organizers and communicators from Jobs with Justice,
Color of Change, and Our Walmart about their Black Friday protests and
inserting workers rights into the holiday season media storm. Their
efforts are getting major coverage and real results - even Ashton
Kutcher is tweeting about workers rights!
