Exploring Political and Cultural History, and Possibilities: Global Action Project at Netroots Nation
In the year 2017, seeds of revolution, rooted in the spirit of movement leaders like Martin Luther King and Dolores Huerta, are being harvested by the digital and net-based present day movements of black, brown, and TLGBQ lives in America.
Netroots Nation, the annual gathering of liberal bloggers, independent media makers and online organizers, connected fellow activists, educators and storytellers. Global Action Project, a social justice youth media organization, and a Hive member, attended several sessions and events aligned with our mission and met new allies in youth organizing. G.A.P.’s contingent also reconnected with longtime partners in media policy advocacy work within the Media Action Grassroots Network (MAG-Net).
