Informing and partnering with local media is essential to bringing attention to your actions and strategies. They need to know who, what, where, when, and why we are acting. Especially when we will be creating large crowds of activists around a single issue. We can drive the conversation by educating the press about our concerns.

Here is a link to the Indivisible training on How To Get Press To Cover Your Event designed to walk you through how to plan an event that’s media-friendly, how to invite media there, and how to maintain good long-term relationships with reporters.

If you have good local press contacts in any medium, please share them with us.
