Over the last few years, new media platforms have transformed reporting in our communities: neighborhood-based blogs have informed news coverage; ethnic news organizations are collaborating in ways never seen before; and activists use social media to organize around important issues facing their community. Open City Project Director Lena Sze speaks along side Ed Litvak (The Lo-Down NYC), Jeff Yang (Our Chinatown), and Anthony Advincula (New American Media) in this panel discussion at the 4th Annual Asian American Community Development Conference, presented by Asian Americans For Equality. Moderated by Norman Eng (National Employment Law Project), the workshop focuses on how hyperlocal blogs and non-conventional media coverage can serve as resources for ethnic and immigrant communities.
Open to the public. Registration required.
