How to Get Press for Peace and Progressive Issues

  • Workbar Central Square 45 Prospect Street Cambridge, MA, 02139 United States (map)

As peace activists and progressive organizations struggle to make themselves heard in a media environment that rewards the rich, powerful, and institutionally entrenched, it’s important that we develop the skills necessary to get our message out.

On Thursday, April 26th, activist journalists Chris Faraone and Jason Pramas of the Boston Institute for Nonprofit Journalism and DigBoston will hold a workshop at Workbar Central Square (45 Prospect Street, Cambridge) from 6-8 p.m. to show organizers learn how to get press, develop relationships with journalists, target messages, build robust, lasting networks of communication, and write effective op-eds.

Chris, a nationally-known investigative and music journalist, is editorial director of Boston Institute for Nonprofit Journalism (BINJ) and editor-in-chief of DigBoston, the Hub’s alternative newsweekly. A veteran photojournalist and longtime social justice advocate who was lead organizer of the 2004 Boston Social Forum and published the online left-wing news outlet Open Media Boston from 2008 to 2015, Jason is network director of BINJ and executive editor of DigBoston.

Join us April 26th and equip yourself, your organization, or your cause with these invaluable tools and start reaching the audiences you need to effect real change. There is no charge, but please sign up in advance at .

Sponsored by Massachusetts Peace Action Education Fund and BINJ
