Dear Friends,
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!
RSVP here 
the first Stop the Presses! /Conversations on Communications and Innovation/
Joseph Phelan, and the rest of the CSS team.
P.S. If you are in the Bay area (12/5) or Boston (12/10), don't miss our
