This interactive course is designed to give folks the tools they need to become better advocates for their communities. Working with the media can seem like an intimidating process, but this workshop will give you the hands-on skills you need to feel confident. Specific skills addressed in Media 101 include writing and submitting letters to the editor and op-eds, writing media advisories and releases, pitching reporters to cover an event, and building relationships with media outlets. Be prepared to do some writing and role-playing (though in a fun, not intimidating way!). All are welcome.
