Submitted by richkrollman on Tue, 01/22/2008 - 11:02am
The Street Memorial Project(www.ghostbikes.org), Transportation Alternatives(www.transalt.org, StreetFilms(www.streetfilms.org), and Time's Up!(www.times-up.org) use art, advocacy, media and direct action to make New York City streets more livable. These complementary strategies reclaim the media representation of pedestrian and cyclist fatalities in New York City. We create art and our own media to give voice to previously unheard narratives. The purpose of this panel discussion is to provide concrete examples of successful complementary strategies for Media Justice.
