INCITE! Women of Color Against Violence Presents a Women of Color / Trans Folks of Color Track at the 2007 Allied Media Conference in Detroit.

Media justice is a critical vehicle through which feminists of color are organizing for peace and justice.  Using graffiti, zines, blogs, films, books, radio and television programs, and other media tools, we have been telling our stories, making connections, and strengthening movements.

INCITE! is excited to co-sponsor a women of color and trans people of color track at the 2007 Allied Media Conference in collaboration with local women of color organizing for media justice.  Below is a list of workshops at the conference led by feminists of color who are using innovative media strategies to end violence against women and trans people of color and our communities.
