Media Equity Collaborative

@ USSF co-sponsor




Fri June 29 3:30-5:30 @ Centennial Ballroom B. / Marriott

Media Equity Collaborative, in development, is a national networking and funding pool for hundreds of feminist / media justice organizations and producers across the U.S. As determined at Women, Action and the Media (!07) MEC should be sustaining and build up from existing productions and networks. At WAM we outlined these priorities and needs: + Training and Mentoring + Equipment, especially Multimedia + Networking & Collaborating + Document Our Work + Broaden Distribution thru Existing Networks - “Uprising” 1st step

MEC!s long term goal is to bring in a swath of new resources to support our media work which honor our core principles without compromise --- to racial and economic justice, grassroots political activism, women"s empowerment and human rights, and the evolution of a self-determined healthy environment and culture for all. As a new initiative we must be savvy and forthright in utilizing existing venues to meet to build our movement. At USSF join the MEC discussion @

MEC recognizes that the severe lack of funds to do our critical organizing and production work constantly threatens our existence. Further, funding situations pit us against one another. MEC is committed to establishing a new model of funding that strengthens the entire field and broadens our collective reach.
