In this online conversation, we will explore these and many more tactics for engaging the media. This is an opportunity for social change agents and human rights defenders to reflect on and share their approach to engaging the media and learn new tactics from others.
- How do we use the media as part of our goal of improving human rights and social and environmental justice?
- What influences the media? How can we use these influencers to get the media to tell our story the way it needs to be told?
- What can we do to shape or change the lens through which the media tells stories about our reality?
