Media Action Grassroots Network
A project of the Center for Media Justice, the Media Action Grassroots Network (MAG-Net) is a local-to-local advocacy network of grassroots community organizations working together for media change to end poverty, eliminate racism, and ensure human rights. Media Justice speaks to the need to go beyond creating greater access to the same old media structure. Media Justice takes into account history, culture, privilege and power. We need new relationships with media and a new vision for its control, access, and structure. Media Justice understands that this will require new policies, new systems that treat our airways and our communities as more than markets. MAG-Net includes over 100 member groups nationwide, regional chapters, an online action network, a media justice learning community, and collaborative campaigns. Media Literacy Project is one of nine Regional Anchors for MAG-Net, and serves on MAG-Net’s Leadership Team.
