Progressive Media in an Age of Covid & Capitalist Crisis

   - Thursday, February 25, 7:00 p.m. (Eastern)
   - Join via Zoom
   the Facebook Livestream

In an era of growing corporate control over "the news" (from TV to social
media platforms), the role played by independent, alternative, and left
media is more precious than ever.  Yet the corporate-dominated media
landscape, compounded by the Covid19 crisis, creates new barriers and
challenges for left and independent media alike.  How are independent and
alternative media adapting and struggling in the current environment?  What
remains so valuable about these publications? How are independent media
able to speak to issues where the "mainstream" media has proven an utter
failure?  What threats to independent media are now on the horizon? And
what can be done to help extend the reach and amplify the impact of these
important progressive sources for news and analysis?

We will be joined by experienced editors and leading contributors from a
range of progressive, socialist, and labor publications, including:

   - Camila Valle, Assistant Editor at *Monthly Review*
   - Kurt Stand, of Portside
   - Joe Maniscalco, of Labor Press
   - Jason Pramas, of *DigBoston *and the Boston Institute for Independent

Join the conversation and help build the progressive media movement!
