Great Opportunity for students and young academics

Last chance to register for the MFF Summit. Tell your colleagues and students (students are admitted free). Great opportunity to network for jobs, transfer, graduate school, activism, journalism, and more.
This year, Project Censored—the non-profit media watchdog organization, founded at Sonoma State University (SSU) by Professor Carl Jensen—celebrates forty years of documenting significant news stories that independent journalists and news organizations have covered, but that corporate media have either ignored altogether or reported only in incomplete, slanted fashion. To mark this anniversary, Project Censored is hosting a national Media Freedom Summit, to be held on Friday and Saturday, October 21-22 at SSU.

From across the country, the Media Freedom Summit will bring together independent journalists, media activists, professors, students, and members of the public, for the weekend to discuss the links between media power and political power, and to share effective strategies for advancing social justice by promoting media freedom and critical media literacy.
