Now that the FCC is again considering sweeping changes to the nation’s media ownership rules, it’s critical for you to make your voice heard.

This forum — which is free and open to the public — is a rare chance to participate directly in creating media policies that serve the public interest. The event will feature an open microphone session for you to offer testimony on media issues directly to the FCC Commissioners.

There will also be a series of panel discussions on how media concentration affects communities of color with Betty Ellen Berlamino, vice president/general manager, WPIX-TV; Arlene Davila, professor, New York University; Juan Gonzalez, columnist, Daily News; Mona Mangan, executive director, Writer’s Guild of America East; and Anthony Riddle, executive director, Alliance for Community Media.
